581. Eat a ripe mango

My Story

Completed August 2005

I had an ongoing flirtation with him but nothing had ever come of it. One day my phone rang – it was him. He said he had something for me, and could he come over right now to give it to me? Sure, I said.

Five minutes later, there was a knock at my door. He stood there, shyly holding one perfect, ripe mango. Eat it with lime and salt and chili, he said. I invited him inside and together we cut the mango and sprinkled the pieces with chili and salt, squeezed lime juice over the top. Then we fed each other juicy succulent pieces of mango, and a love affair began.

Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be, but what a way to eat your first mango.
