For some reason it feels weird to be eating guava at this time of year. It seems like summer food, more appropriate for the warmer months; maybe even December or March when people start to jet off to the Caribbean and I need to quell my seething jealousy. But we spied a guava at the grocery store and thought why not. Live dangerously.
ME: What is this called?
LAUREN: A lemon?
ME: No, not a lemon. What does it feel like?
SAM: It feels like a disgusting banana.
ME: OK, somebody’s a comedian today. What does it feel like?
LAUREN: Well it feels like….
SAM: A banana! (laughing)
LAUREN: It feels kind of rough….and kind of smooth.
EMMA: A banana!
ME: Did you smell it yet?
LAUREN: It smells like salad. Well actually it smells like salad dressing.
ME: Emma wants to smell it.
EMMA: Smells like banana!
ME: What do you think it’s going to look like on the inside?
LAUREN: Well, I think it’s going to look pinkish yellow.
ME: Did you see it?
ME: Well you guessed it!
LAUREN: Whoa!4 comments
