Wrinkles and Dimples

We have a fridge in our basement.
Just an extra.
Just in case.

We went apple picking in the fall.
And picked bags and bags of apples.
With the intention of baking many pies.

My hubby bakes apple pies.
Yes, really.
He baked 5.

I opened the fridge the other day and found approximately 100 apples that looked like this.




Some were mushy. Some were brown. But most looked like this.
When I looked at them closely, a few thoughts entered my mind.

They look like my thighs.
I wonder if this is how my skin will look in about 30/40 years.

And then I filled up a bin and took them to our compost.

The End.

I can honestly say I have never seen an apple look like that. That's talent.

I recently found a bag of oranges in my garage frig that looked very similar.

Oh no! I hope that's not what we end up looking like. I have fruit that looks like that...in my main fridge.

They were dehydrating on their own! Kinda cool in an I'm glad it was your fridge and not mine way!

Wow, 100?! That's a LOT of apples! How do rotting apples smell? I'm thinking it wouldn't be so bad.

alien thighs!!!

Interesting story. Hmmm. What? No pictures of the thighs? ;)

Heatherlyn said...

I like the colors in the picture.

Hmm, there are some areas on my upper thighs that look like that. Tell me that exercize gets rid of that or I will lose all motivation to exercize forever.

I like that your husband bakes pies. Sounds like he needed to bake like 10 more, or make applesauce too or something. :)

Well, on the brighter side, it was an apple that made you think of your body. And that's good cuz...apples are sweet, yeah :o)
