Apricots

Apricots When I was a boy apricots were small and sweet, no bigger than a golf ball. At market recently imagine my surprise to find apricots of near tennis ball size! The modern culprit was as I suspected, “growth hormones” had been injected. And then this thought with sudden fear: What if I ate these apricots for a year, was there a danger that my normal height of five-feet-three would jump to six-feet-eight and, of greater concern to my vanity, would my weight bloat proportionately?
