The other kind of apple sticker

my collection of the little stickers you find on apples

I eat half an apple as part of my lunch on school days. One time, I noticed that my apple’s sticker had a tiny leaf on its side. A few days later, another apple had a little non-sticky tab on the side of its sticker, solving the problem of sticker residue. The tab was neat but sort of weird-looking. My conclusion: they should make that little leaf into a tab.

Today, an apple in the kitchen had a sticker that was even better. The bottom of the little apple on the logo was a tab — no odd arrows or weird protrusions. But the apple-shaped tab was harder to grab than the rounded ones. I have yet to find the ultimate apple sticker.

On the ten-minute walk to school: the smell of Burger King, a dozen iPods, homeless men, a woman hula-hooping, firetrucks getting washed, graffiti that dripped before it dried, a fountain that smells like chlorine, coupons for Togo’s sandwiches, and a lot of very noisy traffic.
