Descriptions Matter

You can be utterly factual in your description of something, and STILL be completely inaccurate AND miss the point of what you are trying to describe. 

For instance, it took me a long time to appreciate a good cup of tea; in fact, for years if you had asked me if there WAS such a thing as a “good” cup of tea, I would have said no.  Eventually I learned better (and yes, there was a girl involved, but that’s beside the point).  

However, had tea EVER been offered to me as “Would you like a cup of hot dirty water?” (1) I would NEVER have tried it.

Descriptions MATTER!
