Feeling like a Zucchini
I'm feeling like a zucchini today. Weird. Yeah, I know. The phrase, "Going Green" now has new meaning.
Some say that they may feel like a potato, squash, pumpkin, or raisin. But because I'm so unique, I'm feeling like zucchini.
What does a zucchini feel like? Well that's a very good question. First, a zucchini feels like a long, green, spindly thing. They are cool, and they make awesome bread.
Not that I'm really that cool. But everything I'm doing seems like it's taking a loooong time.
Since I'm feeling like a cucumber---no a zucchini how about I give some Zucchini advice. *Anybody feeling like they've been transported into Veggie tales?*
