I was biking home, when I saw it. It was so big and beautiful. I had to have it.
There are so many eating contests out there, why is there never a fruit eating contest?
I bought the pineapple, and decided I would challenge myself to eat the entire thing in one sitting. It would be my own personal eating contest.
I cut it up and immediately started to devour it.
Halfway in I was full, I was receiving encouraging text messages from my friends whom I had told about the challenge. “You are living the dream,” one said, which made me laugh and continue.
I kept on eating when my family until my family came home, and then began to feel guilty that I was not sharing. I shared the last little 7 quarter pieces of my pineapple.
I had gotten so close, and failed. I am going to have this challenge again with myself-and maybe bring others into as well…
