Fructivorivorous

Category: Uncategorized

Behold, a mango, which is good in my sight.

At our house, we really like mangoes.

In fact, we like fruit.  A lot.

We have provisioned ourselves with 28 mangoes, two bunches of bananas, and a bag each of oranges and grapefruit.  It is now a race against time; will they spoil before we can eat them all?  I think not.  For we shall have mangoes in the morning.  We shall have mangoes in the afternoon.  And we shall have mangoes in the evening.  We shall eat bananas in the car on the way to work, and oranges at the other times.  And grapefruit.  And probably banana bread, and diverse mango recipes besides.

Seldom have so few eaten so many.

    what I want to know is, does the consequence of all this fruit consumption scare away cave crickets?

    Unfortunately not, although the cat has been doing a good job; she is the terror of all cave crickets.

    Oh geeze… when I first read this, I read “we have poisoned ourselves with 28 mangos…” and I was looking forward to a great story of how you barely survived yet you still love fruit so much that you’re at it again.

    Lol… I’m glad to see that’s not the case. Good luck with the mangos and if I was still in town, I’d volunteer to help you conquer them.
