The day I had to fly from Japan to Hawaii, I peeled this grapefruit for part of our breakfast.

I should have figured out something was fishy when I chopped off the top and there was a teeny hole next to the stem....eww!

If I had known this guy was in there (still alive too!), I wouldn't have bothered to peel the whole grapefruit.

Those yellowish-orangey specks looked like eggs or something...I guess you know they didn't use pesticides on this grapefruit (a good thing!) but ugh! what a thing to find inside.

But at lease, you saw the little guy and didn't eat him. ;-)

So true Paz!

Take care you two.

Bummer to find it and worse to find it after peeling but MUCH better than only finding half of it later! ;-)

Reminds me of that joke:

What's worse than finding a worm in your apple?

Finding half a worm in your apple.

Glad you didn't eat that extra piece of protein, Kat!

Eeeeks! That would have sent me running and screaming from my kitchen!

Rowena said...

Hahaha! I'm so glad that I ate hours ago. Might've lost my meal had I read this right after lunch!

K and S said...

ugh! if there were only half Debinhawaii and Jenster, you may have heard me scream!!

Thanks Jalna, Su-Lin!

I'm so glad you ate hours ago too, Rowena :)

Take care everyone!

The only thing worse than finding a bug in your food is finding half a bug!

super creepy... in time for Halloween. On that note, I found something similar on a burger at Freshness Burger in japan...it's too bad because I actually like that restaurant, only I feel like I can never go back there again.

so true Tofugirl!

eew, Mary, hope it wasn't too bad an experience.

Take care you two.
