How's everyone doing?! It's been rainy and cloudy over here but the sun peeks out now and again!!
Next week is my spring break so hopefully I get some crafting in!
I am taking writing classes and today I got back one of my personal narratives from about two weeks ago!! My teacher loved it and showed it to one of the other teacher that I don't know! I wanted to share it with you since my writing rarely is really good to the teacher! Our topic was to write about a time when we made an important discovery! Tell me what you think about it!
I scanned the aisle again. There were bananas, apples, and grapes. I was to pick which I wanted for my snack next week. I decided to see which I would enjoy the most throughout the week. It was a tough competition between the apples and bananas, so I took the sack of grapes.
As I headed for our shopping cart, I noticed my mom holding a bag of "oranges". I soon read the label and knew it was grapefruit. My mom insisted that grapefruit was tasty and good for my health. I had never tried grapefruit, so I loaded it into our cart and kept on shopping.
This fruit seemed oddly peculiar. It did not look like a grape, but it was still a fruit! It also was shaped and colored very similar to an orange. I guessed that it would be in the orange "family" because it looked similar, but I also thought it might taste similar too!
When we arrived home, the first thing my mother did was open the pack of grapefruit. She took out a knife and started to cut slices of grapefruit. Then, when she offered me a slice, I was shocked! Inside, the fruit wasn't orange like I predicted, but pink! It seemed very mysterious, so I took an enormous bite out of my slice. A sour taste flooded my mouth. No matter how hard I tried, the sourness was still unwilling to leave my taste-buds! I sat down, not taking another bite. "Doesn't this taste great?" asked my mom after she ate a few slices.
I tried to register her opinion but I couldn't get myself to agree. Then, surprisingly, a tiny bit of sweetness appeared in my mouth but as fast as it came, it went. Now, I have a new food to my list of foods I don't like. I had made an important discovery; I don't like grapefruit!
Have a great weekend!
