My childhood best friend loves barbecue sauce. She dips her french fries in it, chicken nuggets, and of course she adores it on grilled (barbecued) food. She absolutely cannot, however, stand ketchup or tomatoes. When I discovered this, I had all kinds of questions. “You don’t like ketchup? How in the world could that be? Don’t you know BBQ sauce and ketchup have almost identical ingredients?!!” Regardless of my protests, illustrations, and sound reasoning, she remained devout in her position: I love barbecue sauce and I hate tomatoes and ketchup.

It’s interesting how the addition or subtraction of one thing can make all the difference in our reality and our perception. I just could not wrap my mind around the gravity of preference, at the time. It honestly doesn’t matter if the ingredients are identical, she doesn’t like ketchup. That takes nothing away from ketchup and barbecue sauce isn’t hailed supreme condiment all over the world, either. That day she just picked barbecue sauce and probably would the next day and the next. Why we focus on the contrary is fascinating. I could have asked her what she liked so much about it, but I spent that time arguing how silly it was to not like ketchup since the two were so similar. I saw her non-conformity as an affront to reason instead of seeing it for what it was, a preference..
