̈This is the first time that people have come down to earth. This is a new feeling, huh? Well I should call this hunger!
Tes, one of the higher ups in the celestial palace decides to send people down to earth for fun. The people got down to earth. The first hours went swell. They were having so much fun, having freedom that they never had at the palace. All of a sudden they get this weird urge in their stomachs that they never felt before.
They asked Tes about it. ¨Why are we feeling this way, Tes?̈ ̈ Tes answered back with ̈This is the first time that people have come down to earth. This is a new feeling, huh? Well I should call this hunger!¨ They began to eat what the earth had to offer, fruits and animals, but they all said the same thing. ¨It tastes all the same.̈ Months went by, no one wanted to eat anymore.
They wanted to go back to the palace, but Tes refused to send them back. The people refused to eat, some of them died from starvation and they really got angry with Tes. Tes came up with an idea. ̈ ̈Add something to make them taste ̈ He thought to himself.
He came up with adding little animals in their tongues. Those animals would be attracted to your tongue, and they would suck up the fruits and the animals.
The animals would send it to your tongue. People started to notice the difference between the different types of fruits and animals.
Some things were sweet, spicy, bitter, and sour. People liked the different taste and decided to stay on earth. Tes named those animals ¨Taste buds ̈ That's how taste buds came to be.
