Day 50: Are you a fan of delicious flavor?
Truthfully, I wasn’t particularly found of pineapples until I started watching Psych, a crime-procedural dramedy, more so on the comedy than the drama, about a guy named Shawn Spencer with superior observational skills and pretends to be psychic to solve crimes with the Santa Barbara police and his best friend/partner/bro-mate, Gus. It’s full of gags and 80s references and pineapples, which Shawn loves for its delicious flavor despite his aversion for pointy things. The pineapple became the mascot of the show and for me, it became a favorite of mine as well.
I have sweaters and jewelry and little collectible statues of pineapples. But it wasn’t until I moved to Okinawa that I started to enjoy eating pineapples.
Because of the tropical climate, pineapples are also grown on Okinawa, there’s even a park dedicated to the pineapple with cheesy pineapple golf carts, an odd-looking mascot, and gift shops with pineapple-based goodies from cakes to jams to dried and fresh fruit to wine, yes pineapple wine.
