If you don't like mangoes, look away now.

This article includes a "mango" word count well in excess of what is normally reasonable.

It features mango culinary demonstrations, mango samplings, mango lectures, mango medics, a mango auction and even a mango summit.

That's because I attended the International Mango Festival, held in the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami earlier this month.

It's an annual event, one that draws enthusiasts, like myself, and also mango "experts" who gather to talk, taste and slurp their way around this sweetest, drippiest of fruits.

        Hmm. A panty raid yesterday and pj reminders today. One might begin to think your attentions aren't so brotherly after all. ~_~
