Since we were just on the topic of nutrition a few days ago, I thought I would share an interesting true story with you from our ER. It is among the many reasons that I usually prefer to cook my own food.
As it turns out, a patient’s daughter brought some cupcakes to the hospital once as a way to say thanks to the staff for having cared for one of her loved ones. She was so very appreciative of their heroic efforts and decided to cook them an ever so special recipe. As everyone was digging in and fully enjoying their treats, someone remarked, “these are soooo good. And moist! What’s your secret?”
Before I get to the secret ingredient though, let me impart some wisdom that was taught to me. One of my teachers once told me that in ancient times, scholars used to say that 90% of ignorance is bliss. In other words, getting all the details usually ruins most of life’s pleasures. Most of the time, it is just best to enjoy what you have and not ask too many questions.
So, back to the secret ingredient … the patient’s daughter was so visibly happy with all of the complements and beamed out proudly, “I used my own breast milk!” Needless to say, we now only accept packaged food products.
On a similar note, hope you find this little video from failblog. org as fun and “interesting” as I did:
