Strange things go through my mind as I’m negotiating traffic with my cargo of precious children on board. (Yeah, I have to say that part. Some of them are truly precious, some of them are headed for jail sooner than later, and the rest are somewhere in between.)
What I want to know is….
Who, exactly, discovered that honey was edible? And how, pray tell, did this discovery come about?
Did some caveman get stung by a bee and follow it home in a rage, bent on destroying its home and family? On whacking the beehive with his club – assuming he survived the ensuing swarming – did he then see the contents and for some obscure reason decide to actually taste it? I mean, seriously, who goes around randomly tasting things?
Inquiring minds really do want to know.
