846 Do people ever say Tallahassee and mean Florida?



Feb. 23, 2016: Back in the early part of my Orange County days I went out with a woman who was very good at peeling oranges. She took pride in getting the whole peel off in one piece. She got it right most of the time. It was a beautiful thing to watch. She'd use a paring knife, spinning the fruit with one hand and inching the blade along the cut with the other. Before that I'd never thought about peeling an orange as a game. Since then I've gotten fairly good at doing it myself. I don't use a knife now any more than I did then, but I've gotten a lot better at working with the grain of the rind. Some types are almost impossible. Others are usually too easy. These tangerines have a nice mix of qualities for that game.
