I saw a red berry on my Sunday morning walk with Daisie!
I immediately reported this to The Farmer…
“!!!!I SAW A RED BERRY!!!!!”
The Farmer: “You saw a RED berry?”
Me: “Well…it was orange!!”
The Farmer: “Oh – so you saw an ORANGE berry…”
Me: “Ok, I saw an ORANGE berry…”
Me: “!!!!!And there are LOTS of GREEN berries out there!!!!”
The Farmer: “There are lots of puffed up GREEN berries out there?”
Me: “Well, no, uh, they are the little green berries…”
The Farmer: “Puffed up?”
Me: “Well, no, uh they are the little gray berries…”
The Farmer: “Oh – so you saw GRAY berries…”
Me: “Well, yeah…gray berries…”
The Farmer: “And how many red berries did you see?”
Me: “One! Oh – I mean I saw one orange berry…”
The Farmer: “Uh-huh…”
Which being interpreted means: “Woman, you are panicking…Over nothing.”
I have been known to do that.
Suffice to say, The Farmer is not panicking. Harvest is early, but not imminent. We will be ready.
Ok, fine…but today I saw another red – ok, orange – berry…
