I Scream, You Scream

The Tempest in a Teardrop crew know that Larry the Totoro-bear takes everything he does seriously. If he were a gun salesman, or an accountant, or even an author, he’d probably work really hard and turn out exceptional work. So when TiaT needed someone to work the ice-cream booth at the memorial festival, it seemed like a good fit.But there’s something our readers didn’t notice (or just didn’t comment on, if they did.)

A pun! No, that’s not actually it.

Quizzer worked in the strawberry fields for three years. That is the EXACT expression the berries make when they’re picked to go to their “forever homes”.

  1. Interesting. I’d not seen that expression, but I’ve never worked in the strawberry fields. I have encountered the rather smaller wild strawberries… they are, of course, not exactly like their domesticated counterparts.

  2. We didn’t have strawberry fields, but a giant orchard. Teenagers got paid to pick fruit (mostly apples), and to spotlight deer from the back of a pickup. Boy howdy, did the deer look surprised. Briefly. The apples seemed grateful to be taken from the trees. “The whispers. The horrible whispers,” was all they would say about it.

    Good times.
