every time i start to peel an orange i get a little scared. to me fruit is so unpredictable. i pick it out at the grocery store with a prayer in my heart that i am picking the oranges that are juicy and delicious, but really i have no idea if its going to be good or bad. so when i get to the point of eating one of my oranges i don't know what to expect. it could be just gross and i end up spitting out the first bite and throwing the whole thing away (sad face) or it might be the most perfect, juicy, wonderful orange in the world. it is so suspenseful. well today as i was peeling an orange for a mid morning snack, i was pondering all of this, "will this be a nice, healthy mini meal for me today? or will it end up in the trash in 30 seconds along with the peel?" i cautiously took my first bite and to my delightful surprise it was perfect. success! i ate the whole thing beaming. it felt so nice. i am now vitamin c fortified to fight any sickness that comes my way. what a wonderful day.

I am so with you on this....I had one today and it was just so so. At least it wasn't tough and fiberous right?!!!
