The Pear

Today I found a pear in the gravel parking lot at Green River CC. The cold and the rain had preserved it pretty well, so it was in better shape than you would expect a pear to be after lying in a parking lot for an indefinite amount of time. I picked it up because I always have a pear in my lunch, and since it was sitting just a few feet from my car door, I thought that it might have fallen out of my backpack somehow. It turned out that it hadn't.

After threatening to throw it at a friend of who had parked next to me, I put it in my car. However, I now face a gastronomical dilemma: should I eat it or not? It still looks quite good now that I've scraped off the bits of gravel sticking to it. All you readers out there can comment and tell me whether I should go for it or not, and I will make me choice based off of your sage advice.


  1. Go for it. I ate a french fry off of the floor the other day. BE DARING.

  2. Eat the pear. If we're lucky, you'll get poisened.

  3. Do you want me to eat it? It looks like you voted no...

  4. Why would you eat a helpless pear just for fun? :(
