Thread Name: BS: Watermelon: Salt or Sugar?
Subject: RE: BS: Watermelon: Salt or Sugar?
Don, that story reminded me- years ago I worked in a Chinese restaurant. The Chinese cooks got in the habit of asking me to fix their coffee for them: enough cream to make it blond and enough sugar to make it shiny, even though I always drank mine black.

Well, time went by and it started looking good to me and one day I had a bright idea: If I didn't think of it as coffee, I'll bet it would be delicious.

So I ladled the sugar into my coffee and added the cream. BLECH and BLEAH- it was awful.
