I read an article by Anemona Hartocollis-a NYT reporter:
The gravel driveway to the farm is marked by stars and stripes painted on boards, like a Jasper Johns painting, with a baby’s footprints where the stars should be. Its whimsy hints at the affectionate family life inside. In the kitchen, the grocery list on the chalkboard shows requisitions, in different handwriting, for “man soap” and “sanity.” Well-seasoned cast iron pans hang on the wall, and in a freewheeling spirit, nobody minds that the bathroom has no door.
Man soap " is one kind of soap which is proper for man to use". What about "sanity", what thing is it?
What does "well-seasoned " mean? When I refer to the dictionary, it is telling:
- (Cookery) (of food) flavoured pleasantly or generously with herbs, salt, pepper, or spices
- (Forestry) (of timber) prepared and dried skilfully or thoroughly
- (of a person) matured or experienced
Which meaning should be picked above?
