I Hate Me, Part 220,199

We got a particularly good batch of Honeycrisp apples and I put one in with my lunch. Before going to work I had to go to the Mall (about 5 miles away) to pay my phone bill. As I got on the highway, my lunch bag fell on the floor and the apple fell out and was rolling around like a big red pinball bouncing off of many apple bruising surfaces. I tried to grab it without swerving all over the road and while my arms are long they are not orangutan length and I couldn’t get to it. It was the first time that I was hoping for a red light but of course it was smooth sailing. Out of the corner of my eye I could see the apple rolling around and I knew that the apple and my enjoyment of it were doomed. In my Bizarro World Tim brain I thought “Why apple not square?” When I got to the Mall, In picked up the apple and it was mushy and I was bummed.

    Drivng to the mall to pay the phone bill? Why didn’t you just put it on the Noon stage with the ranch payroll?

    It was too late to mail it and I never signed up for online payment and I missed the noon stage

    Pineapples are much easier to retrieve.

    Coincidentally, I was watching a show on Discovery or some other channel named after a Space Shuttle and the Japanese of all people, have developed and grow square water melons, makes packaging so much easier…
