A drop of peach juice hung from Thalia’s chin. She scribbled her index finger across her forehead. “Mhmmmm…. mmmm.” Urania handed the Muse of Wit a napkin. “What are you doing?” “I’m making a mental note. Haven’t you seen Typist write with imagination?” Tal set the unasked-for-napkin down, captured the stray juice droplet with her thumb, and popped it between her lips. “Almost every piece of un-ripe fruit Typist buys at our regular grocery — peaches, plums, pears — ripens to perfection on our countertop. That doesn’t always happen with fruit from other stores. There’s a method — picking at the right time, temperature control, and who knows what else? Our produce manager’s got it going on!”
Seems like those super long, thick eyelashes are trendy nowadays. She fits right in. Enjoy the fruit. We can't have anything but strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and occasionally blueberries on this darn keto diet. And then when we do have strawberries and blackberries it is only 2 or 3 at a time. We have to keep the carbs under 20 grams a day. Not an easy task.

They make watercolor markers? My lovely wife, in her alter ego as "Aunt Debbie," will be ordering some of those for future use. (Especially after she saw how the muses came out in your latest rendering. You got a "WOW!")
When I read today’s Post’s title I immediately wondered if it was a deliberate double entendre after seeing the peach! Produce, like a produce stand, vs produce, as in making something?
When will we see the genetic engineering that produces sugarless strawberries which can then be injected with an artificial sweetener? Xylitol or one of the others?
Brave new world indeed!
To which Nia replied, “Is it necessary to think ‘either - or’ without considering the possibilities. Typist can pull rabbits out of hats blindfolded! Even we Muses. A new look, new attire almost every day!” 😁
