Mr. Eggplant

Dear Mr. Eggplant. When I bought you I had the best of intentions. An eggplant parmesan. Not a difficult recipe, just a lot of steps which require an hour of dedication. Originally I planned to cook you for my mother's visit. That came and went, along with a cold virus that had me thinking I was eating cardboard for a week. Then I was going to cook you when I invited a girlfriend for lunch but that came and went too. When I looked at you this morning you had seen better days. You won't be the first eggplant to hit my compost heap, I'm sure you'll find good company in there along with all the other things I bought with good intentions. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Sincerely,

The Bodhi Chicklet
