Don't Try this at Home
A co-teacher was sweet enough to leave me a coconut on my table in the staff room last week. I went home thoroughly excited to enjoy my coconut. I pulled out the biggest knife I could find and gave it a whack. I expected the top to cleanly fall off like the professionals do, no such luck. When all was said and done I was drinking the coconut water out of a small slit, with coconut n water dripping down my chin and shirt. There were pieces all over the counter, floor, and me. Turns out I should just leave the coconut chopping to the professionals. From now on it will remain "eat-here" and no longer for "take-away."
