aldo-vallon - September 12, 2018
I have never drank out of an actual coconut before, and at this point I do not think I ever will. That is a decision that I am making for myself, and not one that someone else is making for me. I am an adult now and can make my own decisions, Mom.
The reason I do not want to drink from one is because the act has been so built up in my mind, I do not think that there is any way the real thing can live up to my own imaginings. Every paradise setting in fiction has a character drinking out of a coconut, making it seem like pure bliss, but I have never experienced that kind of emotion from a drink that did not include exorbitant amounts of alcohol.
I have had coconut milk before, but it was not the pure stuff. It had all sorts of additives, so I am sure it is way better than the real thing. Added sugar always makes things taste better. And what happens to the meat inside the coconut? Does that get thrown away, or do they crack it open and give you a spoon? If they throw it away it seems like a great waste of resources that I cannot be partnered to.
