So there was a single, solitary kiwi on our counter in the kitchen.
And I decided to make fun of my roommate for it, because who buys one, single, solitary kiwi? So I asked her that.
Roommate: I didn’t buy a kiwi.
Me: This isn’t your kiwi?
Me: But this isn’t my kiwi.
Roommate: That kiwi was there when I got home.
Me: I don’t even eat kiwi!
As you can see, it’s a real kiwi. Here it is, on my counter, giving away nothing.
But I was still confused as to where it came from. Did one of us accidentally buy a kiwi at the store?
So I looked up the Kiwiny company to figure out which stores it’s sold at, to see which one of us might have bought it, since we tend to use different grocery stores.
Kiwiny doesn’t have American retailers.
There is literally no reason for this kiwi to be in my kitchen.
lots of people have been asking me if I ever figured out where the kiwi came from. So to provide an update on the magical kiwi … one day I took a nap and had a dream about those creepy spiders that hide in bananas and I thought like oh my god this kiwi is gonna be full of spiders. So I woke up and promptly put the kiwi in a ziploc bag. To contain the dream spiders.
The kiwi sat on the counter for a few days, then got moved to the top of the fridge to get it out of the way. It sat there for a couple weeks. It never appeared to go bad? I did eventually throw it out, just because I was confused about it and neither of us were ever going to eat the kiwi.
Never found out why the kiwi was in my kitchen. I guess we’ll never know.
These little cuties are Manukura (first 3 images) and her little sister Mauriora (last image)! They’re not albino, they’re just naturally white which is quite rare for North Island Brown Kiwis. They live at Pukaha Mount Bruce, one of New Zealand’s most successful wildlife and captive breeding centre.
Our Avian Propagation Center is caring for a brown kiwi chick for the first time in more than a decade. This endangered
species is an unusual bird: it doesn’t fly, the parents don’t feed
their chicks, and the egg is 4x the expected size for a bird of the
kiwi’s proportions. Details: http://bit.ly/1TCdzmf
