But I couldn't help it. It tastes like sunshine and beaches and summer, and I have to squeeze summer for all it's worth in these latter days of August.
It's funny how much more fun fall sounds though, when you take away the school part. I guess that's (the) one good thing about being a "grown-up".
Oh yeah, one more thing I like about being a grown-up: tomatoes are good. When I was just a wee Yammie, whenever I saw my friends eating tomatoes of their own free will, I would suddenly feel afraid. I needed to run and hide from my clearly brain-washed playmates.
But now, in the brain-washed world of grown-up-hood, instead of just touching our chips in the "juice" of the salsa, we can scoop up all of these wonderful veggies with a joyful heart. Enjoy.
