Once upon a time, there was a man who lost his sense of taste. He despised the blandness of life and couldn’t find joy in anything, except for the company of his caring girlfriend. She stood by him through thick and thin, always offering a comforting presence.
One day, as they strolled through a vibrant farmers’ market, he decided to propose to her. With a heartfelt smile, he asked, “Will you marry me?”
She looked into his eyes and replied, “I would say yes, only if I could taste the sweetness of life again.”
Determined to make her happy, the man embarked on a quest to regain his sense of taste. He tried various remedies and consulted experts until, miraculously, he started savoring the flavors once more.
Excited and hopeful, he rushed to the love of his life and proposed again. “Now that I can taste the world, will you marry me?”
To his surprise, she hesitated and then declined. Bewildered, he asked for an explanation.
She sadly confessed, “I’ve realized that I’ve lost my sense of smell during this time, and without it, I can’t fully enjoy the taste of life. I cannot marry you.”
Heartbroken, the man respected her decision. Later, he penned a letter to her that read, “I am grateful for the wonderful moments we shared. Please take care of my sense of taste, as you have taken care of my heart.”
