On a cool late summer evening
D: Hey, let’s have the yummy fruit you introduced me to, yesterday. I loved it!
D: Ok, lemme cut it
Me: great! 🙂
After a few minutes
D: I guess I should have taken a bigger knife for it.
After a few more minutes
D: Jeez! This needs a still bigger knife alright!
A few more minutes pass, D struggling to cut the fruit through.
D: Oh crazy! Why can’t I cut it! I never knew it took expertise cutting a mere fruit! [To me, exasperated] Hey, can you cut it please! I’ve tried even the sharp meat knife and still can’t cut this silly fruit! I’ve struggled with it enough!
Me: Sure, no issues.
I take the mango, cut it…
D: Holy cow!! How can a small fruit like this have such a big stone inside it!! No wonder this ‘king’ of fruits is hard to fall! It has a heart of stone! 😀
Me: Ya eh! And you were trying to cut through its heart of stone all this while! 😀
D: I wish we hade more of these here, in Canada! I’d be friends with him too then 😛
We both have a good laugh along with a plateful of the blissfully yummy mangoes.
