In life, attempt to be a complementary flavor; it is the attractive option.
An often repeated phrase is "opposites attract" and I certainly see the proof of it in life. My friend from college days, Lisa, is 4'10". Her husband of 32 years is 6'5", and yes, people turn and stare as these two, on opposite ends of the vertical spectrum, walk past. How could people be so different? A dog lover falls for a woman with cats, the party girl pairs with the computer geek, an ISTJ personality type walks down the aisle with an ENFP. This can make for an interesting combination or instantaneous combustion, once the goo-goo eyes go away.
Lime pie paletas bring together the tart, tangy taste of juicy limes played against the intense sweetness of Eagle Brand milk. They provide a burst of flavor that combines and contrasts at once. They are opposite individual tastes, rolled in a graham crust which blend to make a delectable, more perfect whole.
