a well-timed piece of deliciousness

One of the greatest things in the world is a peach, approximately 36-48 hours before it starts to rot. The surface is soft, the skin wrinkles to the touch, and a more cautious eater would compost the fruit. But if you through the risk of spoiled fruit to the wind and take a bite, your daring will pay off. Inside is sweet tender meat. The skin snaps just a bit when you bite. You only get two chews before the flesh turns to juice, and you find yourself licking your hand to not let any of the peach nectar go to waste.

Go eat a peach.
