46/319

I like eating fruit and always enjoy a good orange. The key word being good. I find joy in while splitting the rind, the sweet juices of the delicious, brightly colored, fruit, spray out covering my hands. My mouth starts watering in anticipation. It is worth the chore of uncovering my sweet treat. I will most likely be enjoying it with a piping hot cuppa of Earl Grey tea.

However, there is nothing more disappointing, then breaking the rind and not a drop of juice sprays. And after spending several minutes and burning several calories peeling back the skin only to find dried up pulp covered in a thick transparent layer of chewy stuff.

This is why, when reaching out for my next snack, I am always happy to choose a Hershey bar. It is consistently the same sweet, smooth, chocolate, delight. I never have to guess what I will find under the brown wrapper, I am never left disappointed and can still enjoy it with my Earl Grey.

SO pretty! What lens did you use?

Trisha said...

I think chocolate & tea go best together, not to be outdone by tea & toast. Either way, I like your macro orange. It looks pretty juicy, eh?
