What not to do while waiting

It is not a good idea to buy a coconut 2 weeks before your husband goes to Africa to bring home your new kids. It is also not a good idea to leave the aforementioned coconut in its plastic grocery store wrap on the counter in the kitchen during that time. Two things come to mind: coconuts are filled with milk AND they apparently have a VERY SHORT shelf life. Still one last thought, the smell that a rotten coconut has is distinct, if you have never smelled it---you will recognize it when you do---AND it seems to be a lingering scent that permeates the air for HOURS after you find it. Not that I know anything about this, of course...

Ha! Unless you're on Survivor, it's best to stick to the shredded kind in the bag. :)

Rotton coconut is SO much better than the thought I had which was that a coconut in a plastic bag makes an excellent weapon with which to spin (by means of the bag) and clock one's sibling in the face. Still. It's a rotten coconut, a scent with which I am not familiar, gratefully so.
