Hands Off, Perv!

Okay, I admit it: I get kind of handsy around fruit – especially cherries. 

I’m really particular about the ripeness of my produce – about what color it is and how many bruises it has, and most importantly, how firm it is. I can’t even taste a piece of fruit until I have determined that it is appropriately firm – and I think that makes me kind of a fruit perv, or maybe a “fruitist.”   

Yesterday, for example, I brought a big ol’ bag of cherries to work for my afternoon snack (you know, the healthy eating plan is still in affect) and my colleagues literally gaped as I pawed through the bag, hunting for those perfect cherries.  This is going to sound horribly wrong, but here goes: I manhandled every cherry in the bag until I found the firmest ones.  And then I offered the others to my colleagues. 

Is that so wrong?

  1. Entirely reasonable. I only eat perfect grapes. Luckily E is much less picky.

    • Thanks, S#1. Three cheers for solidarity among Sarahs who are particular about fruit!

  2. Just don’t go joining a fruitist colony! Ha ha ha.

    • Hahaha – well said, Yanskins 🙂

  3. I am also very picky about my produce. You should see me inspect an ear of corn. Of course, I’ve also seen a worm coming out of an innocent-looking ear of corn, so that might have something to do with it.

    • I have officially “gifted” the rest of my cherries to my colleagues… lucky devils. (?)

  4. Hey wait, are you telling me this delightful bag of cherries that landed on my desk has been manhandled?! Oh well, I’ll enjoy them anyway : )

    • Errr… I… ummm… rewashed them before I gifted the delightful produce to you 🙂

  5. You didn’t learn THAT at home…

    • No, I certainly did not… but aren’t you proud? 😀
