Recently, an older Asian woman’s eyes caught my box of little golden, juicy, sweet tomatoes while I was waiting for the cashier at Uwajimaya.
“How much are those tomatoes?” she asked. She was buying two lottery tickets and seemed like she was a regular player.
“Perhaps $6 something. I don’t know exactly,” I replied.
“Oh, my. They are expensive,” she said. “But they sure look good.”
If she just used her lotto money for fresh produce, her health would be better off!
Her thoughts, “If I were to win the lotto, I could buy the best tomatoes in the world!”
Temptation never quits.
In the meantime, I declare myself a winner, a winner of gourmet treats. (end)
