Marriage 201, Lecture 58: My People Do Not Waste

SH: I'm going to throw away this orange.*

Me: No! Do not throw it away!

SH: It can't be any good. The peel is all hard.

Me: No. I'll eat it.

SH: Careful! Don't cut yourself!

Me: See? It's just fine.

SH: I thought you didn't like oranges.

Me: I don't. But there is nothing wrong with this orange.

* That has been in the fridge since Christmas Eve when I zested it for the two sticks of butter rum pecan cinnamon rolls that I made on Christmas morning.
