Lesson learned!

When I was a young girl in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, my dad had a career in a grocery store.

We often visited a local neighbor, a man who had some unique characteristics. During a visit around Christmas time, my dad brought a fresh fruit basket as we had noticed that his diet was mostly canned goods. Thinking this would be a nice “treat”, we felt good about our gift.Β 

On our next visit, the same unique man asked us not to give him such a gift again. When we asked why, he shared the he needed to eat the fruit all at once so it didn’t rot and it had a laxative effect on his system.

Lesson learned. Some gifts, no matter how kind are just not practical! – RobinΒ ?
