When I was a little girl I met a wonderful-smelling lady at a picnic who was tall and had long, brown, wavy hair. Her voice was soft and she smiled often. As we sat in the grass, I watched her eat an apple. She ate the whole thing; top to bottom, back to front. Everything. Including the stem. I was slightly scared of her after that.

I wonder why children are so rigid about social norms (that's not how you're supposed to eat an apple). It makes more sense for adults, who are set in their ways. It just seems to me that children should be more open to alternative solutions to the same problem. But maybe we're just wired that way.

Kids are trying to put structures and rules to everything they see. Which is why they so frequently misinterpret things that we adults understand intuitively. One rule gets applied to anything within a stone's throw of the first lesson. It's a big job. I remember being just slightly frightened of this gigantic (at the time)woman who wouldn't even leave an apple core.

I remember seeing a guy eat an orange, the whole thing - peel and all!

I tried to do it, but couldn't. the rind, i think its called, is so incredibly bitter.

Having had the delightful experience of feeding apples to horses (ponies, probably, in retrospect), I was not too surprised when I first saw a person do it. But I did wonder if she was really a horse.

Yeah! Right!
And did you stick around to see the apple tree grow out of her head?.
I don't think so!.
