A is for Apple

In the beginning there was the apple and everything was quiet. Then Eve took a bite and that's when the fun started. The apple is the most popular fruit in the Western Hemisphere and grows pretty much everywhere. There are thousands of types of apples. My favourite is the Macintosh or Macs. Maybe that's why I love my computer so much. I used to love Delicious apples when you only had them rarely. Then one day they were there every day, their bumps no longer exotic, their almost cloying sweetness no longer exciting. And then they weren't even called Delicious any more and we were all suppposed to pretend that it had always been that way. No thank you Big Brother. I'm fine with my Mac and a hunk of cheddar. And no thank you, you can keep your fancy handkerchief to yourself. I'll just polish it on my jeans.
