Well it seems many of you enjoyed my creative writing experiment, and I believe most of you either arrived at the end of the post and had an Aha moment, and/or went back and re=read the post to see how toast factored in to the rest of the post. I really enjoyed this but…
I wonder, no cancel that, I doubt if anyone raised the question, what does grape or strawberry jelly have to do with toast? In fact I never said the word toast it was all inferred and fit quite nicely together with the story written to support the habit of assumptions.
That is what this is really about…assumptions, and the habit of making them. Think about it, how many food choices do you make a day, ten, twenty probably closer to 50 or 60 and almost all of them are small, and for the most part, habit pre-determined through years of family preferences, peer pressures and savvy marketing, not to mention curriculum printed and distributed by industries who want to insure you believe their products are essential to your health.
Be careful there buddy you are beginning to sound like some kind of conspiracy theorist, No, I am someone who says, think for yourself, don’t accept the status quo, validate what you believe and be able to back it up! Imagine if the next time you made toast, you stopped and said what I put on this, has to do more than taste good….it has to BE good!
