First Tomato

A red, red Jet Star tomato and green leaf lettuce spent a moment on the cutting board in the kitchen. Then came the toast, the mayo, a touch of butter, the slicing knife, the sandwich.

Mmmm, how can one describe the first tomato? Full of flavor, fresh, tangy. Firm when sliced, saucy and zesty.

The slices that could not stay in the sandwich were eaten before the sandwich. Such pure joy -- the first tomato.
