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?
