Birds of the same feather?

“There is a right time to pluck the tomatoes. You have both green and red ones on the same plant.”

“My tomatoes suffer from an identity crisis. Juicy, the red one at the top is not sure why is it not a part of the decorative salad bowl. The green ones do not fancy being chopped and pureed, so prefer to stay green for a longer time. “

“Hmmm … but you are the caretaker. You can decide for them.”

“I’m not a caretaker, but an empathetic parent. Being a woman of color in this country has never been easy.”
