Thank god Anna is not always right

A few days ago Anna wrote about mangoes; specifically, how winter mangoes are like relationships: everything might be pretty on the outside, but what's on the inside is another matter.

I love mangoes. In fact, they are my favorite fruit. When I was in Israel for a month seven years ago teaching English, my host family grew mangoes in their backyard! The host father was also a professional tomato farmer, so I was in heaven!

Okay, back to mangoes. I bought one last night because they were on sale, looked pretty and I was hopeful. And it turned out that when it comes to picking mangoes I know what I am doing. Relationships, well, they are another matter.

P.S. I used the skin of the mango to flavor my tea.
