Sweets to the sweet.

This is a line my grandmother said when she gave me something sweet to eat – like candy or dessert. The first time I heard this line in context, I was pretty surprised that it wasn’t about chocolate for a nice person but flowers for a nice dead person.

I don’t think I was disturbed so much as impressed at how language travels from plays to people, permeating their lives.
