orangeWhen I was little and took “cold lunch” to school, I remember my mom packing a peeled orange in it for me. Sometimes the outside would be a little dry from the exposure to ai,r but it was still okay. Last week I asked Audrey if she wanted me to peel a clementine for her to take in her lunch. She said, “No thanks. You know it’s hard for me to chew the white stuff on the outside.” I tried to explain to her that the “white stuff” on a clementine isn’t as tough as on an orange and how my mom used to always pack me peeled oranges in my lunch. She still refused. I have to admit it made me a little sad.
