Like Me

Turns out Klara detests fruit that has been cut into pieces and prefers to hold a whole strawberry or a whole pear, even if it’s clear she’ll never finish it. Just like me! I also only eat whole fruit and vegetables and hate it when people take a perfectly good tomato and quarter it, making it uneatable.

At least, there’s something Klara has in common with me. She looks so identical to N that people laugh when they see them together and go, “Hey, I guess you won’t need a paternity test.” And with me it’s always, “Oh, so she’s yours? Is this your mommy, little girl?” And Klara, who unlike me has a great sense of humor, responds with a sly look, “No! Monkey mama!” And demonstrates her blue plastic monkey toy for people to admire the real mama.

    I cut it smaller than that and eat watermelon with a spoon, also. Cutting a ten kilo watermelon only in half makes an awfully big serving. Sorry for the earlier misspelling.

    Of course, watermelon must be eaten with salt to bring out the flavor


  4. I love cutting watermelons into smaller cubes and eating with a fork. One of my most favorite dishes. 🙂

    Halfmoon watermelon is the only way to go, if only for the glee of making a mess of yourself in a way that doesn’t make you shunned by society.

    I also don’t quite get biting into a whole tomato – bastards are pretty explosive, and they go better with just a little bit of salt and pepper on the juicy bits anyway.

    Otherwise, yes, I’m in agreement with Klara here. Any fist-sized fruit is meant to go in your fist, not chopped to bits on a plate.

    Sorry. WordPress said I had already posted that, but it was not visible. Now it is there twice,with a minor edit.
