This afternoon I rode the Xtracycle to the grocery store to get some things for lunch. One of my favorite fruits in the world is young coconut. Having lived on it as a kid in the Philippines, I still crave it as an adult.
While I was at a market that we call Stater Bater, I noticed they had some for only $1.49. Heck, why not, I’ll buy two! As I was at the check out, the coconuts was rung up with a ridiculous price of $12! I tried to tell the checker that the sign on the shelf was $1.49, but he argued back that it was $2.49 per pound. I told him never mind and that I had never in my life paid over $1.50 for one coconut.
You’re probably thinking, what do coconuts have anything to do with bike commuting…Well, um I did mention the Xtracycle…so that counts for something, right?
