Do you “sugar coat” your readings?
I often see readers tout the fact that they don’t “sugar coat” their readings, and I’m curious what they mean by that. I’m assuming they don’t mean that they have no tact, although this seems a possible inference. What I think they mean is that they don’t avoid telling you bad news, but technically, that isn’t what sugar coating should indicate. If you sugar coat a pill, you’re making it more palatable or easier to swallow; you aren’t replacing the pill with sugar. Seriously, I really want to know what people intend by this phrase. In case anyone thinks my comments on this term seem reproachful, I want to be clear that such is not my intention. What I hope is that people who use this term will comment here with their thoughts on this topic, including what they mean by the term.
