1. I eat a handful of blueberries every morning because they are good for me. Last Saturday, after visiting Peter at his rehab, I stopped at the farmers’ market on the way to the subway because I had eaten my last blueberry at breakfast. Normally, I would peek at a few vendors’ stalls, but just as I got there, a light rain turned into a torrential down pour, and I had no umbrella. So, I bought the first blueberries I saw. They were $1 for a pint, so I thought. I quickly handed over a dollar and received a bag with four pints of blueberries. My neighbors and I are still eating them.
