X-ray of a Cherry
None of us can literally see the interior dimensions of things with our eyeballs, and not many would think to x-ray a cherry to see what turns up. I did not see the actual x-ray which I am about to report, but I did see a sketch of the results. On an envelope sent from prison and covered with a number of unexpected designs, one was titled "X-ray of a cherry" and was life-size, or perhaps just a little smaller than the average cherry. Inside there could be clearly seen three children holding hands and smiling, two girls and one boy. Now we understand why a bite into a cherry can deliver so much. And aren't the interior dimensions of so many things full of similar riches?
