Yummy yum fruit

This weekend I bought some giant nectarines at the grocery store. The nectarines I'm used to aren't that big. Each one is usually the size of a plum or a squeezable stress ball. But these new nectarines were large, about the size of navel oranges.

I felt them, and they seemed ripe, so I purchased three of them. Yet I was still skeptical. I figured since these nectarines were large, they wouldn't taste as good as the small ones.

I waited until today to try one of my giant nectarines. It took me a while to cut the whole thing into pieces. Then I tasted it. It was yummy yum yum in my tummy tum tum! Who knew?! I'm going to eat these fist-sized nectarines all the time! Of course, with the hormones and pesticides that were probably used to grow these big fruits, my third eye and sixth toes will be a-glowing with radiation by the end of the summer.
