Cauliflower Chronicles

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.
