Green BEAN delivery. I was very excited. My friend, over at my house for our traditional Friday night movies-and-wine evening, was, I think, a little amused at my delight. But then, she eats fruits and vegetables routinely.
Everything looked so neat, packed into its little brown paper bags. I was surprised at how small the apples and pears were, compared to the ones at the grocery store. Maybe it's the grocery store fruits that are unnaturally huge.
I unpacked the bin, and we immediately washed and ate some of the strawberries. Fruit doesn't normally delight me, although I don't dislike it in the way I dislike vegetables. But ever since I started bicycling more often, my body's been sending odd, barely comprehensible signals that it would like some more natural food. Last night I gave it strawberries, and my body immediately responded positively. "Yes!" was the signal I got from myself. "Like this! Send more like this!"
So, yes, the strawberries were just lovely. This morning, rather than my usual rice-with-soy-sauce breakfast, I took one of the little Empire apples out on the balcony, to enjoy the September sunshine with a good book. It was a tasty little apple, and a very pleasant start to the day.
