    My orange.

    Well, something told me I should try peeling my orange in just 2 pieces, so I did. OK, technically it's 3 pieces, counting the little nib, at the stem section, so we'll call it 3 peel sections, OK?

    There's something oddly satisfying when that happens. I've been peeling my bananas like monkeys do lately. Far superior to the human method.

    nothing's better than an orange when you're tripping.

    i learned this in houston at "the most beautiful show on earth," before seeing bonnie prince billy take the stage.

    A skill I learned when walking through a grove, picking an orange and mastering a single spiral cut to remove the outer rind. Then with the edge of the knife and thumb, pulling the softer inner rind for a clean orange and access to each plug.

    There's got to be some science to that. When I was 16-18, really into the grateful dead, and dabbling in psychedelics, we'd always down a big glass of OJ to enhance the experience.

    And a mere 10 days later, I duplicated this amazing feat. This time with a Royal Mandarin, which is just coming into season. These are probably my favorites, nice orange flavor, but with a hint of spice to it.

    You should now try doing it in just one piece.

    Shouldn't modern science allow us to remove the orange from the peel just making a few small incisions and inserting a camera?

    Yesterday I had some orange that was practically half of the inedible white stuff, aka pith. It was mildly infuriating.

    I'll never know. They wouldn't get their cameras that close, while I'm eating.
