I asked Çatalka if she liked radishes.

She said she didn’t know.

And so we went to the market for a leafy bunch that were still dirty with soil. A single bunch cost 1.99

What does it taste like, she asked?

Crisp, spicy, a bit like earth.

I pulled one off for each of us and wiped them on my sweater. After 1-2-3 we took a bite.

“Gross,” she said, before throwing it over a fence into someone’s yard.

Guess she doesn’t like radishes
