Vegetable or Fruit

I have settled in California and have been spending a lot of time going through my stuff in storage.  It's been fun going down memory lane.

I came across a passage I had written as a university student:

"I thought about whether or not I would be a vegetable or fruit?  I think I'd be a carrot.  The main part of the carrot grows underground, hidden, visible only to the person who picks the carrot.  Then there is the green, leafy part which grows above ground, visible to everyone."  

What would you be?  A vegetable or a Fruit?

I'm looking forward to hearing your answers.

I think I am a little of both. I share a lot of myself to a lot of people but at the same time I keep a lot to myself or only share with my husband. :)

readingsully, that's a good balance.

Wow, what a good question.

I think the carrot analogy is perfect. We all show a bit ourselves to the world, but it is what is for show. Who we really are is buried deep underground and only available to those who seek it out.

I'll have to contemplate in my garden today...if I am a carrot I like to think of myself as one of the red ones :-) ... a surprise and full of color.

Making me think this early in the morning is well, challenging. I think I am more fruit at this stage in my life, kind of like a plumb, ripe peach, round and sweet.
