Growing up, I just assumed peas grew on trees or vines as just tiny round green balls. I had absolutely no idea they came in pods and never understood the phrase “two peas in a pod”. It made no sense to me and I had never seen peas in a pod before anyway. At some point, I grew up and had to go to the supermarket myself. I realized that people could, first of all, buy peas that didn’t come frozen or from a can, and second of all, came in pods! All of a sudden, so many things made sense! How crazy is that?
