Oranges So Sour, Life’s Not Such Today!

on November 29, 2015

Oranges so sour that it made me cringe when I chewed on it this evening. Aaarrgh!!

I usually like or can stomach sourish fruits but these 10 oranges I bought are at the nth level of sourness.

Super tart or sour!!πŸ˜“

Ha! No wonder they were on sale at 10 oranges for $3.99. What a bargain  I thought!

An even $4 which makes it 40 cents an orange.

Boy, am I glad that I did not buy 20 of this batch of oranges. Else I would be staring at this mound of oranges for a long while.

Today has been relaxing and even though I am eating sour oranges now, I really cannot complain.

I finally could start on my deck of Korean soapie “Dong Yi” – “Jewel In The Crown” that I borrowed from M about 2 months ago.

I have been busy working late that I could not even start on it.

Story line is set in a dynasty era. Lovely coiffured hair do for the concubines and noble women.

Period costumes are ornate.

Dong Yi is an orphan girl whose father and brother who fight for the oppressed under a secret society were killed by factions within the Perfecture.

She ends up in the palace as a slave girl in the Palace’s Bureau of Music, vowing to find out who framed her family!

Nice story line of corrupt power hungry lords versus the good king and evil Queen mother.

Sheesh even the palace has politics! I believe so and would hazard a guess in all families and companies.

As the wise adage goes in Chinese which means, “every house has a difficult prayer to chant”

Life is such. Power, money and greed governs minion life. To aspire upwards and forward, the inept dabbles in office politics to get ahead.

The hypocritical niceness usually have a sharp knife to one’s back.

Monday is hours away and my office politics begin once the bell is rung.

Tuesday and Friday are my appointed times to see my doctors for this quarter.

I am meeting a new surgeon on Friday and I hope we synergise.

Happy Sunday evening folks or Sunday morning or afternoon, depending of which part of the world you reside in.

Have a great new week ahead.

I got cat fights ahead and must practise my pugilistic warding off of Newbie’s antics.

Om….om….om….may all sutras, mantras or tantric chants protect me ha ha!

If that does not work….lizard’s tail, bat wings, eye of newt… Gaaarrrfffieeld fetch me my paddle to stir the witch’s brew! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜

    Aw, pity about the oranges. I keep stopping short of buying as much fruit as I should because I just can’t get the right mix of “enjoy this” and “will eat enough of it before it spoils” and “the squirrels will like it if I don’t”.

  2. I love to eat oranges, but same thing happened to me. They are too sour to eat 😦 Anyways, hope you are protected with good health sweetie! ❀ ❀ ❀ Try to take more rest πŸ™‚ if you can (although I know you are very busy)!
