Cauliflower Chronicles

Posted in Uncategorized on May 25, 2009 by harimohanraj89

It was a windy night on the beach. MG and Vaa were busy either chasing each other, or re-enacting one of those old Hindi romantic movies. We still don’t know which. Deb and I were standing with our feet in the wet sand, to let the tide wash over them every now and then. It was at this moment that Deb spotted a UFO (Unidentified Floating Object) in the water.

“What’s that?” Deb asked? “No idea,” I said, as we both moved in for a closer look. We found the object was very pale, almost white, with a quite complex structure. “Damn, I think it’s a shell!” exclaimed Deb. “I wonder what it feels like”. I exercised my imagination to come up with a description. “It must be all hard and all,” was the best I could come up with. Then, and idea struck me. “Dude, we should poke it. You know what, I’ll poke it.” And so I poked it. It wasn’t ‘all hard and all’. It was kinda squishy. like those bouncy balls. Rigid, but squishy. Then it hit me. “Deb, I think it’s a cauliflower.”

Join us next week for more vegetables washed ashore. May the trip be with you.

Spike: …. <sigh>… Pale……blue….circle….. drifting in nothingness…. Mighty Terra. The cradle of human civilization. The giver of life. Its …. interesting how its structure and coloring even at this scale
tends to appeal to our aesthetic senses,.. like colorful petals flowers evolved to attract insects…. I wish you could see this Jet! I don’t care WHO you are, if you happen to chance by drifting around these parts,
and you see a planet this beautiful, you HAVE to explore it. It’d be a good test of intelligence…… well…. at least I go down with a killer view!
