The lychee

Part of lunch today was a brown ball. It looked like a boiled chestnut that wanted to eat your face. It was a lychee. I'd never eaten one before. Lychee gummy-candy is not unfamiliar to me and the taste was spot on between the two. It was a bit sticky and hard to eat, but good. Nice experience. Many students didn't even try theirs. Some braved it and declared it tasty, which caused others to try it. It's a genuinely tasty fruit. But there was a fair amount remaining at the end of lunch. And then there are days why I wonder why they aren't so responsive in English class.
