My only problem was that I had no idea how to eat this. So I Googled it and got this.
After much work and effort to get to the mushy white center, I told myself that I was never going to eat this again. Then, I passed by a fruit vendor with my coworkers and asked them if there was an easier way to eat this fruit. They laughed at me when they realized just how much effort I put into eating this fruit and explained to me the “proper way of eating”.
