Fruits – some thoughts

Don`t you want to remind some friend of yours to eat fruit today?

I reminded my wife…and now she has asked me to buy some when I go home in the evening. Why do I always end up axing my own foot? Comes naturally to me, I guess. Just like the fruit.

BTW, did you know that a ‘fruitcake` is a term used to describe a crazy or eccentric person? In some parts of the world it is used to describe people who are not straight in their sexual preferences.

If you are a literate person you would have heard of fruit flies. Yes, the same one that is used for genetic engineering. Did you know that for a long time it was thought that fruit flies were generated spontaneously? For more on Fruit flies Click Here.

Why am I in a fruity mood today? I have no idea. Probably it has got to do with Rekha giving me fruits for lunch. Yes, it is true…I have been coerced, black-mailed and threatened to take lunch to office. That too, cooked by Rekha.

I have been suggesting that we get a cook, but she insists. She still thinks that the way to a man`s heart is through his stomach. Wonder when we getting a cook for the house. One cannot survive on good food once every week. BTW, did I tell you that Rekha and I go out for dinner on all Saturdays?

Here is an article on why we should eat more of fruits and vegetables.

Why am I being so erratic in this post? Why are my thoughts acting like crazy? Am I a fruitcake? If yes, where is the cake part of me? I like cakes.

Now…there is one more thing that Rekha and I disagree on….I think I am a fruitcake and she thinks I am a vegetable!
