Apparently, I’m a hot tomato.  Yep.  I have a friend from Honduras for whom English is a 3rd language.  And she likes to call me a hot tomato.  She uses it in reference to my writing and singing style, and I’ve decided to take it as a compliment.  The first few times I heard it, I gently reminded her that she meant ‘tamale’ not ‘tomato’.  But eventually, I came to think she may be right.  I look good in red. I am occasionally rounder than other times.  My insides are squishy, but the contents vary from sweet to acid–determined by environment.  This next Call is looking for all thinks tomato–apparently including me.  Love this theme…

Check out this Call for Entries from OFAR (Harrisonburg, VA) for Slag Mag‘s Issue 4, Tomato (print and digital). There is no entry fee, and art publication is always a good thing.  Entry is digital, but time is running out.  Take a look
