Three Cherries

Since you already know I love fruit, I won't say it again! How about a story instead?
My dad used to love to tell the story of how I got lost and found in a cherry tree. I was 2 and my parents were picking cherries in our orchard while I was playing on a blanket nearby. Suddenly my dad realized I was not on the blanket anymore and had disappeared! He and my mom walked all over our orchard calling me and looking everywhere they could think of to look, becoming more frantic by the minute! Finally my dad looked UP and there I was, at the top of the ladder, high in the cherry tree, happily eating all the cherries I could reach with my fat little 2 year old hands! They never could figure out how I had gotten past them and up the ladder without them seeing me (sneakly little girl that I was! *evil laugh*). Maybe that was the beginning of my love affair with fruit!
