Thought of finishing up few stuff after lunch. Drove err pedaled the bike and went to the office, in town. After the rain, strong wind started to blow, making me pedal for more (legs hurting, haha). But more than my worry with my legs, are the mango fruits that keep on falling down and scattered all over the streets (trees are being shaken, due to the wind). Tried to stay away from the trees, cause years ago, a fruit fell down while i was sitting under its tree, and that hurts. And earlier, almost. Just a meter away, a fruit fell down in front of me. That was indeed close. Have you been hurt when a fruit accidentally fell down on your head or your foot?

A mango on the head can surely hurt, imagine a coconut.

@JudyEv It's the biggest and hardest thing that I can imagine growing on a tree. In many cartoons you see people hit by coconuts.

wow maybe try to wear a hat every time you cross paths with a tree. our mango tree has a habit of randomly falling mangoes that had riped for so long. but one time long ago while my mom was cleaning the back yard, ONE of the BRANCHES fell meters from her, it was a close call which could have hit her head on if she right under it..from then on i think that's the reason she kept cutting it's branches. yeah, it could be the branches falling next time. so be careful.

Ouch! That sounds like a fruit from the tree falling down would hurt. I have never experienced that before.

I can imagine most fruits could hurt if they land on you from a height. But I guess mangoes are better than coconuts.
