I have several "addictions" to certain healthy things - blueberries, watermelon, pomagranates, etc. During my walks, there's a tree that grows out onto the sidewalk from a nearby resident's yard. I don't like to just help myself, so I asked him, he said yes and I picked a few pomagranates that I'd lusted after as they ripened throughout these past months. Turns out he's going to dig up this huge tree and chop it down. Boo hoo.
So, I brought my bounty home, gleefully cut them up and my first taste was a shock - sour! They looked ripe, but didn't taste ripe. I have saved some to ripen further, but all they've done is get as hard as baseballs.
Not to get too analytical, but I have to smile as I think about the symbolism here; some of the things that I think I want. I get them. And then they are nothing like I thought they'd be.
Wishing all a good week.
