Georgia Peaches and Prickly Seed Pods

In the course of a week, month, or even a day, we encounter people expressing a variety of human emotions. Smooth as a Georgia peach, sharp as a prickly seed pod, or somewhere in-between:

  • Withdrawn or outgoing
  • Cheerful or sullen
  • Anxious or peaceful
  • Sweet or sour
  • Sad or happy
  • Hopeful or hopeless
  • Uncertain or confident
  • Grateful or unappreciative
  • Inconsiderate or respectful

The list goes on…

Emotionally speaking, on a scale of 1 to 10, if:
Smooth as a Georgia peach is 10
Sharp as a prickly seed pod is 1
And you can’t select 5…

…where do you think others most often experience you on the emotion scale?

Note: The peaches in the header photo aren’t actually in Georgia. I took the photo in Homedale, Idaho while Len and I were visiting their local airport.
