The Gift you Give, the Hell you Get

Posted on 4 January, 2008


There’s a flower called Yipilipticus, which grows in the rain forests of Ecuador and Peru. It’s a delicate and beautiful flower which bears a fruit, small and red, for just five days every year, mid-way through June. The fruit is scented, a delightful fragrance, and is deliciously sweet to taste. However, those who taste the fruit are struck within seconds by crippling pains. Petrifying halluncinations follow, and death is a certainty within the hour. The name is Latin, meaning “The Beautiful Agony” – An expression which, when translated into Yiddish, matches the name of this blogger.


Now how could the truth ever hope to live up to that?
