Humble Hostess: Sure. Why?
M: I'm going to drop off some cherry tomatoes.
HH: Great. We'd love them.
M: It's a lot of cherry tomatoes.
HH: No worries. We'll eat every last one of them.
M: I don't think you understand. It's a whole lot of cherry tomatoes, a whole lot.
HH: There is no such thing as too many tomatoes. We'll eat 'em.
M: I don't think you'll be able to eat all of these. You might want to share them with the neighbors.
HH: Come on, Mom. How many can there be? We'll eat every tomato you bring into this house.
M: We'll see.

A person does not anticipate being a Tomato Fairy until a person is obligated to be a Tomato Fairy. A person, however, should not fear said assignment, but instead relish it. Because when a Tomato Fairy goes around the neighborhood delivering bags of darling cherry tomatoes to everyone, that person is generally well received.
Becoming a Tomato Fairy is not the sole benefit of a cherry tomato emergency.
