Just buy a pineapple already!

How hard can it be, really, to buy a simple thing, such as a pineapple?  That’s what I told myself a couple weeks ago when Ahava and I were walking home.  So I did.  Three simple words “So I did” but they show I am moving along in learning Chinese, I am learning the culture enough to try something as simple as buying a pineapple.

You buy it by the 1/2 kilo in case you're like me and had no clue.

They peel it for you at the time of purchase–which includes telling you the price and then weighing the whole pineapple on the scale sitting on the back of the mobile pineapple stand 🙂

If you pester your mom enough...she works up her mom

If you pester your mom enough for two years…she’ll finally work up enough nerve to buy a pineapple

    I miss you! This made me giggle. The pineapple looks great! I love the pattern they left when cutting it. It looks like it is still cold there too. We will finally warm up tomorrow…for 1 day at least.
