Grapes are sour

Daily Prompt – You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, spicy (not a taste per se, but we’re generous): which one do you choose to lose?

“Grapes, grapes, grapes; fresh from the vineyards. Only Rs. 30/- for one kilogram”, the usual hawker shouting in the daily vegetable market.

“Any bargain?”, asked I. “Oh! Young kid, for you 5 Rs. off.”

I found it a good deal and so I went with it. “I will enjoy these at home today”, thought I.

About 1 hour after my lunch I found myself in my living room with the grapes before me. Only thinking about the grapes filled my mind with enjoyment. Those small bright green balls captivated me.

Just as I inserted the first grape into my mouth, “Arrrr!!!!! Theseee are soooo sour!!!!”

The grapes were so sour that I decided not to touch any other grapes. Maybe the hawker knew it in the first place and gave me bargain just to sell his stock. Even now, I couldn’t blame him; it was I who didn’t taste them before buying (sigh).

I wish I could have lost my sour taste bud. It would relieve me of all the sour flavours out there (including those damn grapes).


One thought on “Grapes are sour

  1. Poor guy! Well I have a solution. I think you should imagine the sight of round, juicy and wonderful grapes. Imagine eating a bunch of them in one go. I am sure imagination will help your appetite. And look at the brighter side, at least thoses grapes were not bitter 😀
