Maya has expressed interest in items on the kitchen counter before, but only once has she done something similar.
It started with the juiciest, sweetest mango you can imagine. Having grown up in the tropics we have a penchant for mangoes. So i cut this one up, try a piece, and happily set it aside for my wife and I to devour later. Except when later arrived, much to my chagrin (and then amusement), I see Maya on her hind legs, neck strained as far as possible, tongue lashing back and forth across the bowl of fruit. With every lick I swear I heard a "mine! mine! mine!" voice from her. I had taken precautions to push the bowl far away from the edge of the counter, but where there's a will...
So Maya enjoyed the mango over the next week and my wife and I took solace in the fact that delicious piece of fruit did not go to waste.
