Anthony was looking through the fridge for an orange, when he screamed a blood-curdling scream.
”Look at this!” he shouted. “It’s disgusting!”
”It’s a kiwi,” I said.
“It’s BROWN. And it’s HAIRY,” he protested.
”Yeah, it’s a KIWI. That’s how they’re supposed to look, Son.”
“Oh,” he said. “I thought it was rotten!”
(Two lessons to take away from this:
1. Feed your kids kiwi more regularly, so they can identify it as something OTHER than rotten fruit.
2. Clean out the fruit drawer more regularly, so they don’t have to see brown, hairy fruit that ISN’T kiwi.)
