Last week I got a coconut. A real, actual coconut with the husk and everything. I just spent the last twenty minutes trying to get to the edible parts. What does one do with a coconut? I hammered a few holes in it to drain the water (yum!) and while I was holding it over the bowl, I dropped it, resulting in coconut water splashing all over my shirt, hair and face. I hear coconut is a great conditioner.
So the water was all out, but then what? In LOST, they open coconuts by sticking them on a sharp bamboo shoot and hammering them with a rock. I didn't know where to find bamboo, and couldn't think of a good substitute, so I took it outside, set it on the cement, and hit it with a hammer.
I didn't think it would work, but it actually worked great. Who knew? I am now munching on coconut meat and sipping on coconut water. I am also drenched in the stuff. Maybe I should go change.
