Yeah, no.

     My son and I like to pick up weird stuff at the grocery store. This glossy bowling ball of a fruit caught our attention. I can't speak for my son, but for me, I think it was the netting.
     I imagined a nubile island woman, a flower tucked behind her ear, climbing a tree to pick plump pomelos, her dark hair dancing around her head in the wind, she bites her bottom lip and tears her fishnet stockings to gather the stolen fruit together to....
     Sorry. Uh, sidetracked (into a Jude Deveraux novel apparently).
     Ahem. Like I said, it seemed like a good idea at the time. But typical of a variety of temptations, this tastebud adventure did not meet expectations. In other words, this honey pomelo was more crusty and acidic than my Aunt Donilda.

It IS quite attractive isnt it? A pity it didn't live up to your fantisies....I mean, Expectations.

Funny how guys' fantasies always wind up involving an attractive woman/sex in some way.

Hmmm. My captcha says "methiner". Is it saying that I've lost weight? Is it hitting on me?

What? Were you having visions of fishnet stockings?

Tim said...

I brought some small-town mid-westerners to a Trader Joe's once. They common feeling: "Wow! Everything has such nice packaging!" Very fishnet-y, as you described.
