The Great Carrot Mystery! by The Elephant's Child

Because I’m just home from the hospital, and Covid is still rampant, we are having our groceries delivered rather than going to the store. So I ordered a bunch of carrots. Not a remarkable thing, lots of people eat carrots, don’t they? Carrots come in bunches of slim young carrots, seldom as much as 3/4 of an inch around at the top. My “bunch” turned out to be one carrot, the size of the femur in my left arm. My son wrote a hilarious post about it, trying to consider what to do with it, and ending with carrot steaks. I don’t know what one does with a carrot that big. I didn’t know that carrots could get that big. It’s close to 3″ around at the top.

Not sure what I will do with it. Perhaps send it back to the store manager and ask for suggestions. Funny. But I don’t appreciate having to pay for a carrot that I clearly cannot use. Carrot steaks indeed!
