Happy New Year!
Below, I demonstrate the little known tradition of wearing a pomelo rind on one's head to ring in the new year.

Cheers!

My family never taught me that tradition.

Happy New Year!

Niiiiiice.
p.s. What's a pomelo?

pomelo: This giant citrus (citrus grandus) fruit is native to Malaysia. A large pomelo is the largest of all citrus. They can grow to be as large as a foot in diameter and up to 25 pounds. The rind is very thick but soft and easy to peel away. The resulting fruit is light yellow to coral-pink flesh and can vary from juicy to slightly dry and from seductively spicy-sweet to tangy and tart. The pomelo is also known as a shaddock.

I fear for your children and your children's children.

VW, It tastes like grapefruit, but a little milder. Very yummy.

The pomelo befits you.

Yum! I want to try one (that's NOT been on anyone's head that is).

Been thinking (and dreaming!) about you. How are things? Heard from schools yet?

No word yet...prob not till March. So, this means I've been goofing off and Molt has been getting ulcers.
