The Battle Line has Been Drawn

I am convinced that there are two kinds of people: One that loves tomatoes and one that despises them.

The tomato lovers (who shall be called T-Positives for the purpose of this discussion) plant tomatoes in their yards, engage in endless discussions about drip and soaker watering methods, how to prop up tomatoes while the plants are bearing their fruit, and which types of tomato plants bear the juiciest and sweetest tomatoes in the world.

Millions are being spent by T-Positives who are in search of the ideal tomato plant. In fact, the monetary dedication to the proper care and feeding of the tomato crop is likely to be larger than that of the funding required to cure certain diseases.

T-Negatives (or those people who are completely appalled by the slimy, seedy red juice of a tomato) would rather die than have this fruit, pretending to be a vegetable, touch their food. They shriek if someone accidentally forgets and puts a slice of tomato on their sandwich because those disgusting "things" are ruining the bread. They delicately pick the red "things" out of their salads. (Actually, they throw them on the countertop when they are discovered.) They would prefer that restaurants have a non-T zone and a T-zone so that they don't get grossed out by the sight of some messy T-Positive individual slurping spaghetti sauce all over their clean white shirt.

T-Positives are sure that if T-Negatives just tried – really truly tried – their lovely tomatoes from their garden that they would have to admit their erroneous belief that they do not like tomatoes.

T-Negatives wish that T-Positives would stop campaigning for their conversion. They have never liked tomatoes. They do not like them now. And unless nuclear war occurs and they are starving to death, it is completely unlikely that they will ever voluntarily eat a tomato.

Because there are many mixed families, T-Positives have had to make certain accommodations for the T-Negatives in their lives:

  • Alfredo sauce must be served along with Marinara sauce.

  • Salads have to be dished on separate plates so that the tomatoes seeds won't accidentally spill out and ruin a T-Negative's greenery.

  • When BLT's (bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches) are on the menu, an alternative option must be available or screams of "Unfair! Unfair!" will fill the air.

  • Stuffed tomatoes must be replaced with stuffed peppers or stuffed onions - or the chef better not stuff anything at all.

As a note: An experienced T-Positive mother can advise the neophytes in our audience that it is best not to point out to a T-Negative teenager that pizza sauce has tomatoes in it. They know it, but they don't want the T-Positives they live with to know that they know it. Because, you see, if the T-Positive parent knows for sure that the T-Negative teenager fully understands that pizza sauce has tomatoes in it, the teen will have to acknowledge that they are actually eating their nemesis food item and that will upset the delicate life balance that exists in their world. (Just eat the pizza, Mom. Enough already.)

T-Positives understand that tomatoes are rich with Vitamin C, D, potassium, and calcium. These health benefits, along with the fact that the object of their desire has very few calories, allow T-Positives to fully indulge in their lustful ways during the warm fall days when tomato picking is at its peak.

T-Negatives would just as soon pop a multivitamin and forget about the whole thing.

The battle line has been drawn - and it is running straight down the middle of my kitchen.

And speaking of kitchens... I have this lovely pile of tomatoes sitting on my counter right now. I think I'll go make myself a BLT.

I'm hungry!

Games

June's Forum Game: Re-JUNE-venate!

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Scrap Girls Forum for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from June 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Forum participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm EDT on June 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page- into a drawing for one of three $3 Gift Certificates.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
