Radioactive Produce

This is a rumor.

A friend of a friend was pregnant. She got repeatedly turned away from produce stand. They tell her quietly and politely to keep moving. Apparently, they have enough scruples to not sell radioactive tomatoes to pregnant women, but not so much that they wouldn’t sell them to people like me.

According to rumor, (Please, remember this is all hearsay.) she has since delivered a healthy boy, and now asks produce vendors whether their products are fresh. “Yes,” they say. Then she tells them she has a two year old child at home. “Are they really fresh?” And, often, they tell her to go somewhere else.

I’m hoping to glow in the dark when I return to the U.S.
