Vegetable or Fruit

The Fresh Veggie family were enjoying their time off together. They were eating some ice-cream and they had some fresh strawberries on it.

“These strawberries taste so good,” said Mrs. Tomato. “I love the taste of fruit.”

“That is really funny,” laughed Christopher Corn.

“What is so funny?” asked Mrs. Tomato.

“Did you know that technically tomatoes are fruit?” laughed Christopher Corn.

“Fruit!” exclaimed Mrs. Tomato. “Are you serious?”

“Dead serious,” said Christopher.

“So,” said Mrs. Tomato. “How would I taste on top of ice-cream?”

Christopher thought about what Mrs. Tomato had just said. There was no way that tomatoes and ice-cream would ever be a good mix. He just couldn’t see it.

“I’ m sorry,” said Christopher. “I can’t for the life of me ever see ice-cream and tomatoes together.”

“How about I say that I am part vegetable?” asked Mrs. Tomato.

“That sounds good to me,” said Christopher.

Christopher got up and grabbed his guitar.

“No, no, no tomatoes on my ice-cream,” sang Christopher.” Not a good taste it would seem. Tomatoes are a fruit but I don’t give a hoot. No, no, no tomatoes on my ice-cream.”

Christopher had every one in stitches laughing. The Fresh Veggie family had such a good time together.


Moral of this Story:

  • Be whatever you are comfortable being.
  • Example: Mrs. Tomato felt more comfortable being a vegetable than a fruit.
