A.M. Revelations at Brick House #4

J, while cutting up nectarine for breakfast: “Man, I hate when your nectarine doesn’t separate nicely or cut open nicely!”

Me: “Yeah, did I ever tell you that nectarines are crazy, and that there are like eight different varieties (clingstone or freestone, tasty or bland, different colors, yada yada) and that a given nectarine seed won’t necessarily produce nectarine of its own type, it’s just a crapshoot as to what variety you get?”

J:  “Yeah, I remember you telling me that, it’s crazy!”

J:  “… It’s kind of like children, though.  You don’t really know how they’re going to turn out either, you just have to wait and see what you wind up with!”
