mango madness

i've been eating mangos almost every day. they're in season, and my girlfriend's mother constantly buys them for me.

this morning's mango was a fine specimen, clean, unbruised and nicely ripened. i cut into it as usual, slicing off tasty strips of mango flesh.

halfway into eating it, a creature crawled out of the mango's center. a brown beetlish thing.

still makes me shudder. i can't figure out how it got in there. the mango's exterior was completely intact.

i have come to accept the legion of cockroaches i share my apartment with, but this is too much.
