Cucumber





I have relished cucumbers all my life.  One of my earliest memories from childhood was when I was about two years old (I know the rough age because I know from my mother that I was no longer in that particular high chair after I was two years old) and eating cucumber rings from the metal table of my high chair.

I will eat cucumbers in any form.... fresh, in salads, pickled in one way or another (dill, Polish, hot-and-spicy, bread-and-butter, candied, and sweet (in order of preference)).

I have never met a cucumber I did not like.

I am still in the void, but I am trying to fix it.

Perhaps a cucumber might fill your void?

This is one of the things I can eat! I must admit the sandwiches are a particular favorite.

My grandmother often said, "I like cucumbers, but they don't like me." I think they like me a little better, but our relationship is tepid.

Others ask me what in the hell is wrong with you, how in the hell would I know.

Get off your ass and do another post.
