     My husband has dementia and has quite a sweet tooth. One morning he said, "that whipped cream tastes like soap". I looked in the end table and realized he was trying to eat the jar of skin softener I keep there. Another time he said "that beef jerky tastes like cardboard". I laughed and said "it's no wonder, you are eating the back of the picture frame". Luckily he didn't get sick!!
