Little surprises

This morning I bought an orange for breakfast.  As I fought to open its tough peel, I realized it was pink inside.

“Oh nooooo,” I thought.  “A grapefruit!  How sneaky.”

But, surprise surprise, it tasted like an orange after all.  It was juicy and sweet, much better than the other oranges I’ve eaten here.  Usually they’re dry and tasteless.

A small victory to start the day.
