Tropical Diary: Post #257TF (Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned)
Thursday, June 4, 2009

I couldn't help myself, really. I pass her every day on my morning walk with my wife. And she is too beautiful to resist this time of year ... laden with fruit ... those leathery-skinned brown orbs so ripe they are pinkish-red. Already, I had tropical fruit on my mind, having passed a big tree of ripe mangoes just a block before. "Take me!" screamed the lychee fruit, hanging from the tree. "Eat me! ... NOW!"

It was obvious the owner didn't appreciate her. All that fruit, ignored! And if you've eaten lychees before you can understand why I couldn't resist.

"Eat me!" she screamed again.

At home, later, I cleansed my sticky fingers of the evidence.

You'll have to help me on this one. To date, my only experience with lychees has been that gelatinized "snack" we bought at the Mercado Gigante and snarfed down like a jello shot. I hope the real deal is better.

Guess we're both going to be doing time for tropical fruit theft. Hope they serve lychees in the slammer.

And yes, Scott, the real deal is far, far better than the slimy snack version, which always reminds me of a sweet oyster. Ewwww.

I agree with Deborah: the real fruit is NOTHING like the flavored crap.. it's like comparing heirloom tomatoes to cheap ketchup.
FYI: lychee martini
Shake and pour: gin or vodka, some pureed lychee nuts and a squeeze of lemon.

Of course, you realize that this post is actually a metaphor for the seduction of a neighbor's wife, which is why the title is Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.

I mean: "Take me!", "Eat me ... NOW!", cleansed my sticky fingers of the evidence. C'mon. It's a little obvious don't you think?

"It was obvious the owner didn't appreciate her. All that fruit, ignored!" Yeah! That guy deserves to be cuckolded! Go on, do your thing Ad.
