Here's the Real Deal Holyfield

Me: "Mom? Turns out I eat the skin of kiwis, and everyone I've talked to has cringed at the idea."

Mom: "Of course you do. I taught you to."

Me: Blank stare, then, "I knew it!"

Mom: "I went with James on a field trip, and John Morley was the grocer, and he encouraged us all to eat the skin of kiwis after we had washed them. The skin has the all of the nutrients, and besides, it immediately melts in your mouth."

Me: Justified

So I am no longer Belly Goat Gruff.
(The Belly part was born because my tummy was so sore at the time ... not because I had just eaten the skin of a kiwi.)
Let me know how all of your adventures go as you experiment with kiwi skins.
