    i wear my sun glasses at night...

    but on the real though ya'll are sleeping on fresh produce, bosc pears especially. They are much better than those green shits your mom always buys. I would rank them on a juiceyness scale of 7 out of 10, 10 being the juiciest. Word to your mom, tell her to buy bosc.

    Am I the only one who was looking forward to the santa claus melon then came in here and fell victim to high hopes and broken promises?
