I took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather here to take a nice walk before heading to the family gathering. Along my route I saw a little girl in her front yard. She yelled to me:
“Have a great Thanksgiving Day today!”
Which was really nice, so I said back “Thank you – you too!”
After a moment she yelled: “I’m just peeling the tomato!”
I didn’t quite know what to say to that. After a beat I said “Good job!”
I walked away wondering why she was peeling a tomato. Or maybe she meant potato? Either way, just one? And why in the front yard alone?
It will remain a mystery.
