Don’t Judge a Mango by its Cover …

Apparently books aren’t the only inanimate (or animate) objects you shouldn’t be judging by their skins.

Don’t believe me? Think I’m being melodramatic? Okay, so I wouldn’t (more like couldn’t) normally argue with you on that point as severely as I should – I just wish I had taken a photograph of this enticingly flirtatious mango so you could all get it.

I have never seen a more beautiful Mango in my life, an orange shade that would put a sunset on the most picturesque beach to shame, dripping with bursts of mouth-watering juicy pulp that would no doubt be the envy of every single of Willy Wonker’s syrup infused lollies and a skin as soft, if not more delectable (or podgy) as a (diet required) baby’s bottom.

Feel like some mango right about now? Yeah, well just don’t. Stay away from that sinful Megan Fox Mango version coz she’s just gonna break your heart. Believe me. I do not lie. Well I do sometimes, but that’s another story.

For us Indians (even apparently demonizing-ly diluted immigrant ones like myself), mangos are sometimes the ONLY fruit we will ingest as a dessert and that is because it’s sweet enough to kill any lingering remnants of potential health.

Yeah well, not this one. It was crap. Sometimes you don’t need any eloquent words to explain your experience. This mango suxed. Full stop. I hope you can fully comprehend the dire situation because I even resorted to spelling out the word “full stop”.

Beauty is definitely skin deep guys, I just didn’t realise I would have to find out this way. Woe is me 😦

Oh cheer up. It’s Hump Day, we’re nearly there 🙂

      Really? How about just ripping it apart with your sniper resembling canines? That way you could be completely covered in yellow pulp, just the way everyone likes. Or is that just me? Don’t answer that.

        Oh don’t worry, we’re used to creepy. – we’re writers, or at least I think I am, sometimes. You should try being in a room with Lulu and Gumpy. I’m not judging or anything, but cuckoooooo

    Oh! And I think maybe you saw my post a couple weeks ago asking for guest bloggers? Want to write a guest post for me?! I’ll send you the invite before you even answer. You’re hilarious. So my readers will love you. Just make it about writing or book or publishing, something you might find on my blog. IF you decide to take me up on my offer. I’m having a week of guest bloggers next week , soooo you gotta hurry! 🙂

      Wow, I am honoured. Really?! This is a lot of pressure though, I’m not funny, I’m just slightly off my rockers, is that what passes for humour nowadays? I knew it! Can I get that in writing for my next meeting with my psychiatrist please? Apparently Lulu is not a credible testament to my sanity plea? I know, she was very insulted.

        Stop it. Just accept the invite from the email you should have gotten a few days ago and write something. Anything about books or writing. ANYTHING. Pleaseeee. I only have four right now. I’ll love you forever. Or at least until I see a koala in person. 😊

        Oh alright, but only because you have gone and signed your love confession in blood, so now it’s mine. Wuuaaaahhhhh (my rendition of an evil laugh btw, just in case you think my keyboard had a nervous breakdown or something). Oh, and don’t think I’m easy. I understand the dilemma of choosing between a koala and myself but you at least have to pretend like the choice was a tough decision, okay? Comprende?

        Seriously though. I am honoured … really. No jokes.

        Hahaha yes! I’ve seen on TV that koalas are not always nice. So maybe you’ll luck out and I’ll meet a mean one and then you’ll be stuck with me forever. 😊

        Honored? I’m just a guy across the ocean who loves your voice. And I blog a little. I’m no one important. 😊

        Hey!!!! Do NOT sell yourself short, you are someone and YOU ARE important. There, now you have it … my Friday pep talk.

        Aww, see how good you are at making me think it’s a hard decision, choosing between a koala and myself. You’re like an expert.

        I had to keep reminding myself that that the question mark was after the “you” this time and not the “okay”. You have no idea how many times I have been asked whether I was okay, with a badly cloaked sound of disbelieving hypocrisy.

    Who can argue with bitter taste that you had.. I hope, you have recovered :p
    But, the importance of a beautiful cover can not be underestimated.. Things sell because of covers, style over substance.
