Walnuts

I bought some walnuts at the farmer’s

market for my friend.

The shells were almost impenetrable.

The soft-shelled ones are easy to

be infested by worms if they crack,

which is often.

So you have to observe closely what

you buy at the market, not assuming

quality and freshness just

because it’s straight from the

farmer.

He threatened a hammer.  I said,

Whoa! don’t get so violent

with these little walnuts.

They will give to your nut

cracker and besides, being so

“hard” to get into will slow

down any possible overeating

of them.

He went home relishing

the idea of gorging on

freshly cracked walnuts.

I felt happy to be of

service & be useful to

someone without them

even asking me.
