Food For Thought

“That is the worst saying of all time.”

“No it’s not. You just don’t understand it.”

“I understand it just fine. It’s just dumb. Why even have cake if you can’t eat it?”

“See, you don’t understand it.”

“It means you can’t have everything you want.”

“Partly. It means you can’t have the cake if you eat it. Once you eat it, it is gone. It no longer exists.”

“Except inside you.”

“Well, yeah, but it’s no longer cake. It’s already broken down and making you fat, or launching your blood sugar into space.”

“It does make sense when you explain it like that, but wouldn’t it be easier to understand if it went ‘You can’t eat your cake and have it too’?”

“You know what? I think you’ve finally learned something. It does make more sense that way.”

“Language is weird.”

“Without it, what would we be?”
