Put the Key Lime in the Coconut

29 June 2022

  • A palm tree was standing alone in the sand. A blow of wind moved it enough for a coconut to get loose. It snapped off the tree, rolled down on the tree's trunk and made a soft thump as it fell in the sand, quite deeply so. It didn't break at all but it got some sand on top of it.

  • A child come running by and didn't see the coconut buried in the sand. One of the toes then slammed into the coconut shell and caused the child to topple over.

  • “Aw, nuts.” The child then saw the coconut. Why not crack one open? And so the child cracked it open with a rock and drank a most refreshing drink.

  • "If you like piña coladas," the child began to sing, "And gettin' caught in Bahrain. If you're not dancin' polka while water swirls down the drain. If you like makin' doves & bobwhites interbreed with technique, then I'm the love that you've looked for—write to me, ya big freak."

  • I shuddered, trying to keep my emotions off my face. You see, I was caught in Bahrain. It took 7 months of wrangling, 3 attorneys, and a phone call from a Senator to get me out.

  • And once I got out I was back to committing the same thing once again. What were they going to do? Stop me again? I retired to a remote island where I spent the rest of my days.
