The coconut at the back of my fridge

It’s usually leftovers that sit forgotten on the back of a shelf in our refrigerator, lost in the mid-week shuffle of preparing meals and shuttling the extra portions into Tupperware. But yesterday, I came face-to-face with an entirely different type of holdover: a fuzzy coconut of indeterminate age.

The coconut is neither bad — although frankly, I’m not exactly certain when a coconut goes bad in the fridge — nor noxious. It appears to be in nearly the same condition as when it was purchased, although the exact date of that purchase currently escapes my recollection, Senator.
