apples and tomatoes
A tomato differs from an apple because it is tender, not crisp, tart, and not sweet. A tomato will ooze when you cut it with a knife, while an apple merely makes a shushed crunch sound. A tomato can finish a sandwich. An apple would not fit well on top of bologna. An apple’s skin will shine as it hangs from the tree. A tomato’s skin is waxy and dull as you pluck it from the vine. An apple tastes great with caramel, while a tomato usually does not. If you step on an apple you will stumble and fall. If you step on a tomato, your shoe will be slimy. You can throw a tomato to show your disgust, if you throw an apple, you’ll probably get assault charges.
