Chapter 1

Tomato Chase

When I was 11 years old, I had a pet box turtle I named Tyrone, my mom found it trying to cross a road when we lived in Florida, just before we moved to Virginia because my dad, who was in the U.S. Navy was transferred to the navy base in Newport News aboard the U.S.S. Kearsarge. I later found out from reading a book I had just gotten that my turtle I thought was a he was a she, bit the name stuck.
After a few months of living in our house in Hampton Virginia my mom had planted a vegetable garden in the front yard. I was out there one day picking cherry tomatoes, I had Tyrone in the bucket I was throwing them into. I looked and noticed some of the tomatoes missing, I shrugged it off and kept picking, I looked again and caught my turtle eating them. From then on I would give her a tomato as a treat,
I went to Annapolis, Maryland to visit my grandpa and took Tyrone with me. One day we went grocery shopping and he got some tomatoes for my turtle, some, quite large. We got back to his apartment and I took her out to the sidewalk with a tomato. I set her down, put the tomato in front of her, she tried to take a bite, and it rolled a away from her few inches, she walked up to it and tried again, and again, the tomato rolled away from her, she tried again, same result, as I was watching this, I realized I was watching a turtle chasing a tomato down a sidewalk and busted out laughing, then gouged a hole in the fruit with my thumbnail so the turtle could bite into it.
