Lesson For Today by Mylares Lesson For Today by Mylares
Honestly, there is no poem for this one, only a little story. Here it goes, do NOT try to open a coconut with a machete unless you have previous experience. The milk tastes wonderful, but it's not worth losing a finger over, k? And that concludes our lesson for today. ;P

Oh dear, and what a lesson to learn. I'm glad I won't have to make this mistake myself ^^;

I think the colours and haphazzard placement of all the shards and chunks make a beautiful chaos here. the colours and placements I wouldn't change for the world!

Great job!

Yes, yes, not a very fun lesson to learn, that's for sure!

Haha, but anyway thank you! I was lucky to have passed by when they were still there. Someone was about to take them away and I was like, "NO! STOP! ALTO!" Hehe, you know they were like "crazy American".

....I'll try not to!:XD: I don't wanna loose any of my fingers! I adore them! I like painting nailpolish over them!

That's right! Where will the nailpolish go if you have no fingers? Your teeth? Not only will that look wrong, but it'll taste bad too! So no machete! *flings it out the window where it falls on someone's car* Uh, and don't throw them out of windows either...:XD:

Wait! Sorry, I must have misphrased that. ^^; I nearly lost my finger, but I'm fine! However, we did have one guy with his who hit the back of his ankle with a machete. He had to be taken back into the city and to get stitches. He's lucky he didn't cut a tendon! He just missed it!

Yes, it would be! The guy who did get cut, Gary. He was alright after he had a few stiches and some good painkiller medicine. :nod:

That would be my worst nightmare!!! Well, you see, I play the piano and if I lost a finger, I won't be able to reach my dreams!!! Gosh~!

Yes, that would be very bad! So you play the piano? That's awesome (especially since it's your dream)! Have you been doing it for very long?

Since I was 5 or 6 years old I think. Not really long since I'm just 14 right now. It's actually my moms dream for herself but since she's too old to learn it, she passed her dreams to me...

Well that's still longer than anyone I know (who plays the piano). Plus, it shows how dedicated you are. So your mother passed it on to you? That's really neat that she trusts with that. I'm curious though, it is what you want to do right?

Did you ever try it? I have my grandma taught me, but its very dangerous D: but it tastes so good X3 what a dilema is in it?

:iconmylares:
Mylares Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2008
Oh yes! It tasted wonderful! Honestly, it tasted like watermelon juice to me. I guess the problem was I am not used to handling a machete so when I tried to crack one open, well I missed, but I almost cut off my finger. Sooooo, I've decided not to try it again.

whoa..should I pressume you had some problems with the machete??? :O

well, the picture is great..I love the ambient, it reminds me of when I was a child..

Mylares Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2008
Haha, only once! I tried to hit the coconut and when I did it skittered off the edge and my whole hand vibrated and got extremely numb. But that was my story. We had another guy who, don't ask me how, hit himself in the back of his ankle, barely missing the tendon (he was helping to cut down a tree). He had to be taken out of the village and to a hospital to get stitches.

Thank you! I was very satisfied that I just happened to pass by it, walking up to my hut. It reminds you of being a child, how so?

:P guess you were a bit frightened after that, I'd have been!
oh, poor guy...that must hurt, is he ok now?

:) you're welcome!
uhmm..when I was a child I used to go with my uncle to his girlfriend's house..her family lived in a huge plot with lots of different sowings and animals...those were great days :D

Yeah I was! I didn't touch a machete the rest of the trip! And yes, he is fine now. He just needed those stiches and a little bit of pain killer and he was ok.

That sounds like it was a lot of fun! It's always great to think about all the places you played at when you were young. All the "adventures" you had along the way. ;P

Good for you! It's certainly a very important lesson since I know you're going to be cracking open coconuts sometime in the near future. :giggle: Oh and thank you! It was a neat still life to catch!
