Two ants, sugar, salt and a lesson about change

Once there were two ants. One lived in a sack of salt while the other in a sack of sugar. The sugar ant once visited her neighbour and tasted the salt in her sack. 

Finding it bitter she said, “Do come and visit my house. I’m sure you’ll find the food there much to your liking.” 

The salt-fed ant accepted her neighbour’s invitation but being naturally cautious and not wanting to run short of food she took a grain of salt with her in her mouth.

When she ate the sugar she said, “Frankly I don’t know what you’re talking about. Your food tastes much like mine.”

The sugar fed ant replied, “Perhaps that’s because you’re hounding on to something of your own. Get rid of that and I’m sure you’ll notice the difference.” 

The salt fed ant cleaned out her mouth, tasted the sugar and never returned to the sack of salt.
