Red Tops

Vegetables may suck but
sucking on them in a cool glass of 
V8 juice after a hot game of tennis is
refreshingly tasty. 

Not to forget the roots are packed with
so many different vegetables and vitamins
that when their crushed and made into
juice and sampled often you shall live a
long, long life. 

But, one day my partner got so tired 
of me talking about vegetables he 
grabbed my bottle of V8 and poured 
it all over my feet with my tennis shoes
off, my socks were blood red, the
ungrateful bugger.
