Words Have a Taste



I think we are all very familiar with how words taste in our own mouths.  Usually very yummy yummy ... good for our tummy, eh?   But what we are less familiar with is how they feel going in somebody else's ears.  Yet that is what they must mean ... no? 

food for thought? ...

Absolutely !   In one hole and out another ... the complete effect of the meme (or whatever) becomes the total of each of the different feelings and effects that happened and at goes in and out of holes.

Then too there is the phenomena where you are expecting a apple but you get a onion.  So, because it is not what you expect, you reject it.  Happens with cooking and eating ... happens also with talking and listening. 
Yep, & some people need toilet paper as a bib too!

yep, going in ... feels different than coming out ... same person ... different hole.  So we can now over generalize to .... The meaning of the thing is dependent on the hole it traverses ... .
