I have a secret file in my head of every single time someone has complimented me on my fruit salad. There's the time a white person mentioned the nata de coco. Ooh, exotic, they said. There's the time the pomegranate seeds were praised. There's like, four other people who have complimented me, so I'll just go ahead and make it official-- Best Fruit Salad of All Time awarded to me. It me.
Oh my goodness. I wasn't prepared to accept this award. Wow. I mean. Wow. Where do I start? There's the whipped cream. I couldn't have done it without whipped cream. The mini marshmallows. Thank you for believing in me. The fresh strawberries. You are my foundation in this mad, mad world. The pomegranate seeds. The pomegranate seeds! We slaved together, we worked so hard together. Pomegranate seeds, *wipes a single tear*, we did it, baby!
And my husband. For encouraging me, for pushing me, for loving me. Thank you. I love you to the moon and back.
*Raises trophy in the air*
Thank you so much. I can't believe this. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
