1. They looked at me like I was the most ridiculous person on earth and walked away, shaking their heads.
2. They shouted out the first thing that came to mind.
Of course, I preferred #2 answers to the question. I was never sure what their answers meant, but the way they answered meant something. They were willing to take a risk and answer a seemingly silly question. Some people would put a lot of thought into their answers, saying things like, “A kiwi. You would never expect what’s inside based on what you see on the outside.” Jimmy answered, “A red apple,” on our first date. I took this to mean steady and loyal. Apples aren’t trying to hide anything. I think it turned out to be true. 😉
So, what fruit are you? Don’t hesitate, just answer. Don’t be a #1.
Be open to silly questions is the moral of the story.
