MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER

(BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND OR WE ARE JUST VERY VERY LAZY)

She kept you inside her for almost a year.

She nursed you and dressed you and settled your fear.

She bathed you and raised you and gave you great care.

Whenever you cried she would always be there.

She taught you and bought you, took care of your needs.

She mended and tended to all of your bleeds.

She praised you and dazed you with the golden rule.

She brained you and trained you when you were a fool.

She drove you and drove you and drove you and drove.

She drove you and drove you and drove you and drove.

She gave you her heart she did all that it took.

So please, this Sunday, don’t make her cook.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

NEW PRODUCE QUIZ – – WHAT AM I??

Originally from Malaysia, I grow in clusters on a small evergreen tree. While several of my relatives have smooth or moderately bumpy skin I am wild, out of control. Maybe that way you’ll leave me alone. But no such luck for me. Though I try to portray a hedgehog to discourage you I am plucked from my family. My yellowish-brown shell is split open to reveal a white translucent pulp. I even grow a seed in my center in hopes of being passed by but to no avail. You just cannot seem to get enough of my super sweet flesh. Some of my relatives have developed the ability to be sour or acidic but you still just pluck, pluck, and pluck. Only two inches in diameter you had think they would leave us alone. Some folks get fancy. They cut off only my top half and serve me like an egg in a cup. Can you imagine seeing your relatives like that? Usually eaten out of hand, I am also a great component of a fruit salad. Other uses include canned in syrup, used in stuffing’s, or cooked alongside vegetables or meat. I am rich in vitamin C and am a good source of iron and potassium. In my opinion, we are best left alone to multiply, but you don’t seem to agree so there are not many of us around.
