Many days ago, I saw a woman eat an apple. She bit into that shiny red round miracle and that oh so perfect scrunch, crunch- ripe, yet not yet there, reached my ears, which were, to the dismay of my hungry stomach, placed diagonally beside her. So the pretty (also hungry, I would assume as she was lunatically gorging that apple in an extremely crowded bus) lady bit and gobbled and swallowed. But a small apple lasts only for so long, you see, so in no time at all the apple was over and done with. As per me. Because, where in the world does anyone ever eat the apple 'completely', seeds, stalk and core?
Right there, in front of my eyes.
The lady wouldn't stop with the fresh, edible-y hard part of the apple. She went on to the amazement of me and my roommate, to chew on the core, the seeds and the stalk. We both were giggling and passing comments (as would have any other Indian, ok ok, Tamil girls).
Oh, the curse of being a 'judge'-er of others!
A few days later, happy me, in possession of a similar red miracle, warming a window seat in a similarly crowded bus, similarly gobbled on the apple. Now, I am an ordinary girl, with ordinary eating habits (licking fingers is ordinary)so when I was stuck with a wet-with-the-natural-goodness-of-simple sucrose combined with my saliva - apple core (and about 30 minutes of journey left) I did what you are guessing I did. In went the seeds, the core and the stalk! haha!
And you know what, except for the weird tasting seeds and the slightly bitter stalk, the core wasn't too bad you know.
So just because I don't do it, doesn't mean its wrong. Lesson learnt!
