What we see is not always what we get. The other day a loved one bought me a large chocolate chip cookie. It had, beside the usual chips, raisins and nuts and spice, and tasted delicious. So this morning I walked into a bakery to buy something for my granddaughter, and saw what I thought were replicas of the original I got at Young’s Farm.
I ordered three of them. The sales girl tried to tell me they were the same as the big chocolate chip cookies, but without the chips. I wouldn’t listen, they looked like the originals.
When I got outside I tasted one. Was I disappointed. They were just what the sales girl had said. So I had relied on my own perception and ignored what the helpful sales girl was trying to tell me. And they cost the same as the ones with the chips.
