Talk the walk

Grandma D likes cantaloupe. She said so a few days ago. She said it’s probably her favorite fruit. Growing up, I had eaten cantaloupe at her house all the time. My mom had even mentioned that when she was growing up, she ate a lot of cantaloupe.

Until Grandma said it was her favorite, though, I didn’t particularly associate her with cantaloupe. Now I do.

A lot of people break out the cliche, “You have to walk the talk,” but not many turn it around. For anything to stick, though, you have to also “talk the walk.” Aligning both what you say and what you do creates the strongest recommendation.
