As if pearls and rubies had dropped from his nose

I neglected my dear friend, the pomegranate, last time he was in town. We spent time together the other night, and it was a joy. I know no other fruit that contains such mystery.

By the by, were you were aware that grenadine is derived from pomegranates? I was not, but then again I skipped right over Shirley Temples, in favor of something a bit more, well, potent.

fun grenadine facts! i figured cherries were the derivative, probably b/c of the shirley temple paradigm. did you know it stains clothing quite badly too? my mom told me that once b/c, like my father, i spill shit on my clothes a lot.

congrats on your reunion.
