Until they do something like this.
Here's something I never thought I'd need to clarify, but all the same: I am not an apple thief, nor did my daughter and I share an ill-gotten apple at the supermarket. Fortunately, I know and love my daughter's teachers, so I will, I hope, be able to clear our previously good name.
Despite the apple-related aspersions being cast about by my daughter, we still went forward with our plan to go apple picking today. It was exactly as I had hoped it would be, putting aside the car barf extravaganza of which we shall not speak, and the loss of my beloved sunglasses somewhere in the zillion acre apple orchard. Vaya con manzanas, Ray-Ban Warriors.

And now, I'm off to make an apple crisp. With PROPERLY PURCHASED APPLES. What the hell else am I going to do with a half bushel of apples? That wasn't rhetorical, by the way. HELP MEEEEE.
