Did you know strawberries are alive? If you listen closely you can hear it sing, “Oh what a life! Oh what a life! A strawberry is a fine thing to be. Sweet and sunny and bright, I love being me!”

Once upon a time, there was a lost strawberry who couldn’t find her way home. She had forgotten who she was and looked like a little girl on the outside.
Sometimes strawberries are concealed. They are covered up by skin and bone and experience. When she tried to be a strawberry, sweet and sunny and bright, the people around her didn’t understand. Sometimes they would get mad, and sometimes they would do very scary things.
