When doing some holiday shopping earlier in the week we came across these individually packaged pears by the checkout at Harry and David, purveyors of fruits and other such things. Curious about the little plastic cases enclosing the pears, I checked one out and noticed they carried a $3.95 price tag. Much like Vince Vega's fascination with the five dollar shake in Pulp Fiction, I had to experience what a four-dollar pear tasted like. After paying for a pair of pears, we were informed that they were actually as hard as rocks, and wouldn't be ripe for eating for three or four days. This span has passed, so I am going to be really mad at myself if we keep forgetting to eat them… It's one thing to indulge our curiosity in buying premium-priced treats like this, but it's another thing to feed them to the fruit flies.
