mango vert,mango teen

Well, I must say I am all mangoed out. This is the first year in my 38yrs of mango seasons I can honestly say that I if I see one more mango I am going to ......

How did this happen? I do not know, all I know is that there were too few people chasing too many mangoes.

Earlier this week I had to throw away a bag of mangoes that had not even been opened. The mangoes were bought. brought to the house, where no one paid the slightest attention to them until they started to rot. And then they had to be thrown away.

There is something wrong about that, all those mangoes should have been given away before they had a chance to rot.

This of course would never have happened if the boys were at home - mangoes do not get a chance to ripe, far less rot.

I think we have just gotten used to buying so many mangoes and other fruits (oranges went into the garbage this week as well) and now we have to realize that the household has shrunk and that goes for cooking food as well, I find that I have to heat up a lot of leftovers. There are a lot of adjustments that one has to make when one is a damn empty nester.

It is high time my son came home from training, it has been well over two months. I hope I am not disappointed this week as I was last week, because then they are going to be hearing from me (smile)
