Salt and Pepper
We all know that salt and pepper complete every meal, and appear on every table in homes and restaurants. When you want to say that two people fit together, you say they’re like salt and pepper, but what if we wanted to talk about a group of three people who are inseparable? What would be the third spice? Cumin? Cinnamon?
In the old days, apparently, they knew the answer, but no one bothered telling us. As it turns out (google it – it’s true), in the past, there was a third popular tabletop seasoning that could be found on any table, in addition to salt and pepper. However, with time, the third mysterious spice has lost its value, while salt and pepper remained prominent on tabletops around the word.
