First thing Prickle brings to my mind is prickly heat… yea.. happens when you live in a furnace.
Today is one of those days when wordpress know exactly what to throw your way.
So one of my closest friends was with me today. She has a little garden and so does my mom so there was an exchange of custard apple and limes.
My mom was actually craving custard apple and my friend got it coincidently.
Me: O my God! I wish mom asked for something bigger. This is so sweet of you.
Friend: No. I am not that sweet and they are not for free I want limes.
So we head to pick limes. While we were at it something pricked my finger. She held a lime and twisted it and said, “this is how you pick limes”
Our lime plant didn’t have thorns. And before today, I though only lemon plants have thorns. We continued with my friend’s technique and it worked perfectly.
And oh! Have you ever dared to call a lemon ..lime, accidently????
And when that happened did you receive stares full of disgust screaming “you are so illiterate”???
And were you instantly corrected “they are limes” ??
And then did you wonder what’s the difference because you have been using both for the same purpose??
Has happened to me quite a few times..
The world would be a better place if people weren’t so unnecessarily prickly.
No Subject is prickly. We can be careful with words and discuss anything until it’s directly offensive to anybody.
But if you are surrounded prickly people you can’t even call a thorn a prickle… they will argue because they have been calling it a thorn.
