What I learned tonight is blueberries make your fingers purple. This may seem like a basic concept, but it is not. An apple won’t turn your fingers red nor will an orange turn them orange. When is the last time you ate some celery, were your hands green after that, I think not. This is a good lesson, you can’t judge a food by its cover. Cover meaning the outer part, such as the skin of the blueberry. Although the “cover” of an orange might be the peal, for this lesson it is not, it’s just the out side of the fleshy part of the orange. Why is this a good lesson? It is a good lesson because you might see something you want to eat and be like well I can’t eat that I don’t want my fingers to change colors. You might be missing out on some good food like shrimp, toast and grapes. These three things will not turn your figures colors like a blueberry would. Maybe I am missing the point here, maybe the point is that blueberries are actually purpleberries. I mean why not? I don’t think it is right to judge a food on the outside but can we at least name it right? Why trick me into thinking they are blue? I mean if I see purple all over me I might panic because where did that come from? I mean I just ate some blueberries but this is purple. Blue is a little manlier though, depends on the blue. Baby blue is kind of for babies. See right there, BABY blue is for babies. A red wood tree is red and a light bulb produces light. Life is simple until we think about blueberries. Email congress and any botanist you can find before this dilemma gets out of hand. Before you do that fuel up with some amazingly delicious blueberries purpleberries.
