Seriously, you do not want to be under a durian tree at this time of year! Aside from the attack on your sense of smell, you do not want to get bonked on the head by one of these spiny, heavy fruits. Roy, of course, is absolutely loving this time, eating a durian each day, sometimes with friends, sometimes all by himself. He discovered that if he eats a bite of plain cookie with a bite of durian, it’s like durian pie. He knows he might never have a durian pie baked by his wife, even after 46 years of loving marriage. A person has to draw the line somewhere.
