About this blog right here. Uh huh...

Some people call my luv of mangoes 'a fetish'. Meh. I say it's gone way beyond that! This blog's my homage to the succulent fruit - memoirs, poetry, random thoughts, pics & anything mango-related I can get my tongue on.

Grrr...my nephew doesn't like mangoes...

...he had a nibble...

....and that was it.

Said it was sweet & bitter.  Bitter? What do you mean BITTER. Just because it doesn't taste like chicken mcnuggets doesn't mean it's bitter. Grrrr...

Ok, Ok, I ain't gonna lie - I was relieved I didn't have to share, but c'mon, how can my own flesh and blood not like mangoes?

My nephew's 7 by the way. Adorable eyes. Big big head. I call him isi opiolo which means mango head. Maybe he's rebelling against me for calling him that. I'm proud of him really - for his rebellious nature - just that he picked the wrong fruit to make a point with.

So I shall try again. Get a different variety. No family member of mine shall have blaise tastebuds when it comes to mangoes - oh no.

To be continued...

I once had a co-worker comment that he didn't even know what a mango was, to which another co-worker replied "You're lucky, they're mushy, gritty, bitter-sweet nasty things." When she said that I told her that the mango she had must have been overripe -- since a good mango is soft but firm, smooth and incredibly sweet.

Hey Wiccania!

I find it interesting that some people don't know what a mango is - fascinating actually. I'd like to be the first to introduce them to it.

Mangoes are so widely distributed. But then I'm sure there must be people out there that don't know what an apple is. It all depends on different factors unique to the individual, I guess.

I don't believe that what the co-worker had was a mango. I've never heard of a 'gritty' mango - unless she knocked back a mouthful of sand for every bite she took. Weirder things have happened!

Thanks for passing through.

take care...


...that in Hinduism, the mango tree is considered to be sacred because Prajapati, the Lord of Creatures, was changed into a mango tree.
