"So what's so great about that? I can do all of which you so eloquently stated and more."
"Yes, but people relish and long to be fulfilled. I'm the one they usually choose for that kind of enjoyment. I stand by ready for any assignation that will surely bring delight to those who choose me."
"How do you come up with that brilliant deduction? Do you have a record to bring to the table?"
"There is no need to conjecture, all you'd have to do is observe. Stand right where you are and learn. Take note, and shake, as you prepare to be enlightened by my presence, and the effect it has on others. It's mesmerizing."
"Ahem! I think I hold the record for all of the above, and then some."
"I don't think so. Nice attempt to disengage from reality my friend. However, when you come down to earth you'll see that I'm preferable to what you have to offer. In fact, I've been the topic of many gatherings. Even in medical conventions. The doctors know me well.
Ha! I bet they do. They've probably been trying to warn everyone to stay away from you. They come to me freely, and I'm good for them."
"Ha! Now who is the jokester? The reality is most will choose the light over the dark.
"I don't think so! I've been known to be chosen over the light upon many occasions. You know that!"
"Yes, that is true...sadly, not the majority of time."
"Look here comes a couple let's see who they'll choose tonight. Are you ready for this?"
"Don't get too shook up when you see who they'll pick."
They waited patiently as the couple spoke to each other lovingly. They talked about the good times, and the bad times in the world. And, finally their meals arrived.
The salt shaker was lifted first and used sparingly. The white pepper was used by the female only, leaving the black pepper alone on the shelf.
"See, as I've said and predicted repeatedly my friend. I hate to break this to you but light pepper is the choice over dark pepper. But the undeniable truth is I'm the preferred choice of all seasonings. I bring out the God-flavors of this earth. If people lose me how will they taste godliness? How will they taste flavor? I'll always be a worthy candidate for those willing to use me, and I'll never be thrown out."
The black pepper and the white pepper stood side by side as the salt proved them wrong yet again.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. (Matthew 5:13 KJV)
