Strawberries and Apples on the London Tube
A British brother and sister in school uniform, on the Tube, kneeling and facing the window, looking out, with their brown loafers sticking out equally behind them, while the one eats a red strawberry, the other a green apple, both commenting excitedly on what they see outside: the tube roof, the pole, the platform….
Boy (in serious upper class Brit accent): Look, Clara! (points at her apple) That is the Core of the apple. This brown thing, you see, that is the Core.
Clara: Yes, James. This is the Core. Isn’t it funny, James, how all apples have a Core?
James; If it didn’t have a core, you know, Clara, it would not be an apple. An apple has to have a core to be an apple.
Clara (points): See—all those seeds. It’s part of the core you know. An apple has to have that too or it would not be an apple. It wouldn’t be an apple, you see.
James: And do you know why, Clara, it is called an Ap–ple?
Clara: I don’t know why.
James (very serious and concentrated): Think about it. It’s called an AP-ple, Clara. An AP-ple. It is because it is a lot, do you see (pauses) like the Ipod Apple. It’s very much alike, you know.
