Candidly refreshing

I always wondered why people in New-England were so cold and impersonal.... figured it must be something to do with the cold winters. Now I think I know the truth. Its because they are not happy.

Nah.. I shouldn't say that. Perhaps they are happy in their own peculiar way. What I should say is that they have not known true joy. That joy that you can only find in the en(joy)ment of a good ripe mango.

I sat outside in the muggy heat at lunch today; armed with a knife, a bowl and a bottle of ice-cold water. I had me a medium sized mango.... perfectly ripened, which I proceeded to carve up expertly with the little pairing knife I had.

You should have seen the curious ogling I got from all around me as I proceeded to indulge myself in what I am finding out is a peculiarly 'third world' pleasure.... Three ladies (not together) actually stopped and voiced what all the rest must have been wondering.

'OMG Kei, what in the world are you eating?'

Now, in all honesty, if the closest you've come to having a tropical fruit is a pinacolada at your local watering joint, then you truly are missing out on some of life's greatest pleasures. That ten or so minutes gave me a refreshing satisfaction that can only be rivalled by similar enjoyment of equally firm and succulent mango shaped breasts of a young woman.

Ok... Maybe I shouldn't have gone there...

Yum. Wait ... you managed to purchase a REALLY GOOD mango here in the US? Wow! Perhaps you have been gone from equator long enough that it just seemed like a good mango. ;o)

@ 3... I bet you do

Beth, for five years I never laid an eye on a real mango.... but recently they've been importing them from Asia and South America. If you know where to go and what to pick...

being the editor that i am [and seeing as Beth beat me to the mango question] i shall focus on the 'similar enjoyment' - do you generally enjoy b's with a knife, a bowl and a bottle of ice cold water, and does the art generally involve 'carving up with a little pairing knife' ?

Oh! CB... you kinky girl you... I shall plead the fifth on that one. What happens in Kei's bed chambers stays there:)
