The Question is Resolved

So, last night, I bought a bunch of fruit salad at the grocery store.  They've got one of those service delis where they have all sorts of pre-made salads in massive bowls, and then they'll fill up a little container with whatever you want.  So for me:  fruit salad.

Today, I sat down to eat said fruit salad.

Now, I'm feeling a bit under the weather.  Sore throat, mostly.  So far, it hasn't affected my taste buds -- food has pretty much tasted like food.  So, here's me, eating fruit salad in front of the TV, and the fruit salad tastes a little off.  Can't really pin it down, but fruit salad is not supposed to taste like this.  Is it me?

I look down into the bowl and discover, in the middle of my fruit salad, a wayward slice of tomato. 

Yeah, that would do it.

Now, I know there's an endless debate over whether a tomato is a vegetable or a fruit.  I don't care how the scientists classify it -- the damn thing does not belong in a fruit salad.
