Peeling the Orange
I hate peeling oranges. But I love eating them. Especially Little Clementines. Especially while they're in season (like right now). But I hate peeling them. The stuff gets up in my nails and my hands smell like oranges for hours. Not to mention how very cold the tips of my fingers always get.
I used to buy oranges but because I refused to peel them, they would sit and sit and sit and then go bad.
I've finally come to the conclusion that my husband is not always going to be there to peel the oranges for me. I have to do it if I want to eat that sweet, juicy fruit.
Sometimes, you just have to be the one to peel those oranges.
