So here we are the first day of the Blogging From A To Z Challenge. It only seems like two minutes that I was doing this last year! For more information visit the A To Z Challenge blog.
This year I have decided to just write about what randomly comes in to my head when I think of each letter.
And with ‘A’ it was apples… not totally original I know, seen as apple is usually the world used to start teaching us the alphabet at school. My second thought was ants. But I’ve no clue what to write about when it comes to ants – apart from I like how they march along in Tom & Jerry cartoons.
skip ahead to 5.31 to see the ants... or just watch the whole cartoon - it's up to you.
Anyway back to apples – I thought I’d tell you about a little peculiarity in my family (to be honest there are a lot of peculiarities in my family!)
I do not like to eat apples in their natural state. But I will eat them in pie… or crumble… or sauce. I’ll eat apple flavoured sweets and cakes. And I’ll even drink apple juice. But I don’t like eating fresh, non processed apples.
Now my brother is the opposite of me. He doesn’t like apple pie or anything like that (although I think he will drink the juice). But he is perfectly happy to eat the aforementioned natural, non processed apples.
There is something similar with my brother and sister and lemons. My sister will not eat anything lemon flavoured whatsoever except for Lemon Meringue Pie. My brother is the exact opposite and won’t eat lemon meringue but will eat anything else vaguely lemon flavoured.
And my brother and I are the same with strawberries just with a slight difference. Both me and my brother will eat strawberry jam and strawberry flavoured things… but neither of us will eat normal strawberries.
(So for my legions of admirers don’t send me strawberries be they chocolate coated or otherwise. Because I won’t eat them. You can send chocolate though ;) )
