Thursday Quiz - Fruity Stuff

I took the day off on Tuesday, the first day of school.
I like to watch the kids get on the bus, or in their friend's car, and embarrass them by taking pictures.
Oh and I do.
So then I spent the morning sorting out some knitting projects and watching a movie I adore, Wild Strawberries, an Ingmar Bergman film.
I think this movie is one of my favorites by Bergman. It is a poignant look back at an old man's life and the events that projected him into a lonely and cold old age, and the small steps he takes to rectify this for himself and his heirs.
If you don't mind Swedish (with subtitles), watch this movie straight through and I mean really watch it.
It was the last movie for Victor Sjostrom, who plays the protagonist Dr. Borg, as he died three years after filming and one year after the film's release.
Interestingly enough the Vatican has vetted this film and found it worthy.
So, with Wild Strawberries in mind, I have a quiz for you.

You Are a Pear

You are independent, intelligent, and a free thinker.
You can accomplish great things, especially when you do them on your own.
You are direct, honest, and sometimes even a bit brutal.
There's not much that gets in the way of you and your ambition.
While you are hard nosed, you do have a much sweeter side to you.
It takes times for you to soften toward someone, but once you do, you'll be their friend for life.

So I am a pear not only in shape but also in nature.
How sad.
Here's a trailer for the film, just in case you're interested.
