Grapefruit in a Furniture Store

A grapefruit was rolling around in a furniture store. It liked rolling down the curves of sofas, along the edges of coffee tables, and through the legs of dressers.

Rolling was tiring. It got tired and decided to take a break on a soft chair.

A very large man saw the soft chair that the grapefruit was sitting on. It was a La-Z-Boy. "Comfy!" he said, as he hopped toward the chair.

Unfortunately, the La-Z-Boy was beige, which was pretty similar to the grapefruit's skin color. The large man sat down and squished the pulpy grapefruit. The grapefruit tried hard to retain all the pulp that it could, but its efforts were futile.

The man sat in the chair for what seemed like hours. The flat grapefruit sat under him, in the dark.
