Another day. Another walk. Another death threat.
As if the walnuts were not bad enough,
monkey brains are dropping from the sky.
Also known as Osage Oranges, these huge, meaty seeds
are the size of a softball and weigh a ton.
As far as I'm concerned, one strike and you're out!
There's no chance of survival. I fear the worst.
Will I have to wear a helmet? A frightening thought.
It's certainly not an attractive fruit and it's not even edible.
However, it might have one redeeming quality.
Osage Oranges are supposed to act as an insect repellent.
I could be saved from a few mosquito bites.
