I am in no way knocking Nick’s grocery purchasing skills. It’s hard when one spouse writes out the grocery list (me) and the other spouse does the purchasing on his own (Nick). So when I wrote down ‘oranges’ I had meant maybe 6 or 7 single oranges. Like, there’s only two of us eating these things. But instead Nick arrived home with an entire box of Christmas oranges.

While I was filling one of the fridge’s crisper with the box of oranges I said to Nick, “I remember when mom would dedicate an entire crisper drawer to Christmas oranges.” And Nick laughed! He had never heard of such a thing, when I just always thought it was normal to have one of your crispers full of oranges during the holidays, no?
