Orange you glad I didn't take the ugly orange?

Oranges

A cautionary tale for all of you who recently aquired fancy new cameras or who decided to start a blog this year:

...

Phone call to my husband 5 minutes ago:

Me: Did you take my good orange?

Em: Your good orange?

Me: Yeah, you know, the one with the leaf on it. I said I wanted to photograph it.

Em: Um. (silence). I still have the leaf. I can glue it back on.

Me: Ugh! I said I wanted to photograph it!

Em: I just grabbed the one on the pile (I will admit, there is a bowl of oranges, it was on the top, I should have moved the orange in question). I can glue the leaf back on. I still have it.

Me: C'mon! You should have known! Leave the pretty one!

Em: Um, ok. I'll take the ugly one next time...you'll probably want the ugly one too, right?

Me: Well...yeah...I will. Leave the pretty one and the ugly one.

Em: Ok, I'll take the normal one. (pause). It was a really good apple though.

Me: It was an orange! See, you don't even know what you took!

Em: I took an apple and an orange.

Me: Hoarder.

Em: So, did you you call me about anything else?

Me: No.

Em: I still have the leaf...

...

Consider yourself warned.

OH MY GOSH, THIS POST IS HILARIOUS. This totally reminds me of a conversation that my husband and I had about which macarons he could eat. They weren't all round (my piping sucks) and I needed them in sets to make pretty macarons. You guys sound hilarious. H I L A R I O U S. Did I mention this cracked me up? :) xo
