Talking Dictionary406. The Most Important Sense


406. Three teens were sitting at a bus stop. Sam asked, "How many senses do we have?" Sara said, "I think we have five—sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch." Sue was watching traffic. Sam asked, "Which one is most important to you?" Sara said, "Sight, of course. What would life be like if you didn't know what you or your boyfriend looked like? If you couldn't see to put on your makeup?" Sam said, "I think taste is most important. Just think about biting into a piece of chocolate and it tastes like lettuce. Life wouldn't be worth living." Sue shouted, "Look out!" Then they heard the squeal of brakes. Sue said, "Some guy just tried to run across the street in the middle of the block. He didn't even wait for traffic. That car almost hit him. What good are sight and taste if you have no common sense?" 1.8
