It's a plot!!
Okay. Fine. So last week I got a bunch of fresh strawberries on sale and froze them, figuring I'd make smoothies. On the first go, (using the special 'crush frozen stuff' setting of the blender) the plastic gear assembly on the blade shattered and shot out everywhere, rendering me blenderless. No smoothies.

Just now, in a bizarre attempt to make a kind of 'fruit popsicle' by sticking a fork into a frozen strawberry, the fork slipped and I jammed one tine about a quarter-inch deep into my left thumb. A plain, totally dull salad fork. Bleeding everywhere. The strawberry escaped to freedom across the floor.

There's only one conclusion: The strawberries are out to get me.

I was thinking earlier of using some as ice cubes in strawberry cider, but now I'm not so sure I want to give them the opportunity to strike again... o.O

I can't decide whether killer strawberries are better or worse than Killer Tomatoes... Maybe I should try singing at them?

They might just try to choke you. Eeeek!

OMG, I know! And I am not Sam, so choking is not a daily occurrence for me!

They are thawing in the fridge. I still don't know what I'm doing with them, but being mushy should make them less lethal.

Try a hammer. And let somebody else hold it!

Hammers, the answer to so many of life's problems.

I'm beginning to suspect they were on sale as a tactical maneuver to spread their evil mayhem more effectively.

RUN. RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!

I thawed a bunch and mushed them into plain yogurt, which hasn't proved lethal yet!

HaHA! You go, girl. Way to show 'em who's boss!

I think the freezing was what made them evil.

OH GOD NOW I HAVE FOREIGNER STUCK IN MY HEAD.

Funny, I was slicing some fresh ones yesterday, but managed no harm to myself. You definitely need an industrial blender to protect yourself from their enmity;)

See, I'm thinking the freezing made them evil. *nods*

*mourns lost blender* :-(
