It’s Friday and time for the Red Writing Hood meme.  This week’s prompt was to write a first-person piece about either eating your favorite food or taking a shower – without using a personal pronoun.  Hmm, all right.

Water bounces off the bright red strawberries lying in the stainless steel colander.  Their sweet aroma wafts up, too tempting to wait for dessert.  Picking up the bumpy fruit by its leafy handle and biting down, the overripe fruit bursts.  The sweetness satisfies eager taste buds.  Juice dribbles onto the white t-shirt.  Sigh.

    One of my fave fruits :) When I was little I told everyone I sucked my thumb because it tasted like strawberries lol.

    Oh and my Snapple lid told me yesterday that One strawberry has over 200 seeds!

    Good job :)

    Bursts is the perfect verb! That’s exactly what a good strawberry does! Well done.

    Love it. Description can be hard because if it is too dense it is hard to read. But this read well. And the sigh? So cool, because you wonder if the sigh is because they love the strawberry and don’t care if there’s a stain, or if the sigh is because they’re frustrated by another stain.

      Thanks! They don’t last long in this house. I rarely get any before the girls have finished them, no matter how many I buy. Hope yours were nice and sweet!
