I did not see this before the contest, but I can see why you did well with it. Fresh, entertaining and imaginative.
A great write to brighten up teh small format. And it is good to groan every once in a while.
LisaMay, I wish you well with your continued writing.

    Thank you so much Phill for the review (a 6!!!) and your good wishes. Fresh came from the fruit itself... I was choosing a piece to eat and I suddenly imagined them all talking amongst themselves. The mango wasn't there though.

    Thank you so much for your faith in my poem. Yay, a 6!! It's exciting, leading the field so far.
    I was looking at my fruit, wondering which piece to eat, when they all started talking amongst themselves! Definitely fresh.

No, it didn't give me the pip at all. In fact, I was 'peeling' with laughter. And you fitted in so many different fruits. It was great fun to read. I thought you did really well with this.

This dribble flash fiction is brilliant. I love it. I thought about entering this competition but after reading your entry, perhaps not. I can't compete with this but I will vote for it. Good luck and best wishes. Jen.

Ha ha, brilliant. Made me laugh, anyway. Very fruity. Certainly didn't give me the pip. It'll take something tasty to beat this clever fruit salad. Good luck in the contest.

    Thanks for your chuckles and good wishes. It is a challenge to be original and when I hit on the puns for a story I felt i was on a fruitful direction.
