Tomato arguments

The Italian people in the "Bush" didn't argue about what most might think arguable. Instead, they argued each year about who grew the largest tomatoes in the neighborhood. Grandpa Fiore was proud of his tomatoes. He'd sit on a chair in his garden on Gwinnette Court and watch them grow. If someone came to visit, the first thing he'd do was take them into h is garden, just like a guided tour through an art gallery. You kept your hands in your pockets to abort any desire to unconsciously touch the beautiful red fruit and, like a reward, as the tour ended, Grandpa would pick one for you to take back home."
