Talking Dictionary 656. A Field Day With Apples


656. Lidia's supervisor said, "The next four days, all of you trainees will be in the field. You'll follow agents to clients' homes. You'll watch them interview the clients. You'll take notes." After work every day that week, Lidia bought fruit from the street vendor. She took it home to her five‐year‐old son. Every night she talked to her mom about being in the field. Friday evening, Lidia bumped into her son's teacher. He said, "I haven't seen you in a while. Your son says you're a farmer now. Where do you do your farming?" Lidia said, "Farming? I'm not a farmer. I'm a trainee for a New York City job. I wonder why he said that." When she got home, she asked her son. He said, "You talk to Grandma every night. You go into the field every day. Then you bring me apples and peaches. So, that's a farmer." 3.0
