I hate fresh tomatoes.Â No, maybe hate is the wrong word. Let me start over.
Fresh tomatoes nauseate me. I don’t know what it is about them. I can’t stand the smell of the plants, the fruit, and especially the cut flesh. I gag. It’s not pleasant.
My child, however, is totally smitten with all fresh fruits and vegetables.Â
She found this one in the kitchen when her dad was making spaghetti sauce, and proceeded to eat it like an apple.
I was entirely grossed out, even before she smeared tomato slime all over me and the couch.
