'Twas The FruitGuys

Share this post

'Twas two weeks before the New Year when franticly at work; reports abounded and budgets did lurk.
The memos were posted in the kitchen with care; in hopes that The FruitGuys would soon be there.
When out in the lobby there arose such a clatter; of people enjoying the tasty Fruit matter.
Away to the FruitCrate I flew in a flash; and found my Cara-Cara under the stash.
"Cara-Caras," The FruitGuy began to proclaim; "look like a navel but aren't quite the same."
As I took a quick bite I started to scream, "This sweet pink fruit is a crazed-taste-bud dream!"
And then in a twinkling, as if blossoming with flavor; my feet started to move, my body did waver.
I rose five feet above that office floor; like Dasher and Dancer and Vixen before.
I swished through the skylights and into H/R, and knew in a moment that I'd gone too far.
As the taste lessened and flying decreased, I hit a white board like a wild gliding beast.
James, my boss, not a jolly old elf; shouted "From the whiteboard you must unstick yourself!"
At 150% of daily Vitamin C, Cara-Caras will fly from the box just like me.
Curious about our fruit? Go to In the Mix.
Enjoy and be fruitful!
