Found Persimmon. Dec 2010

I saw this on the sidewalk while walking in my neighborhood this morning. Yes, it's a bit gross to pick up partially-eaten food (or any food) off the ground, but I felt compelled to add it to my found objects records, because this particular object was a poignant reminder of a recent occurrence.

A few weeks ago, my mom was rushed to the hospital via ambulance, because she couldn't breathe. Her airway had closed up due to an allergic reaction to eating a persimmon.

(She's fine now.)

That is scary. But also, I like the photo.
