Delight is so bright. You can see delight. You can smell delight.

Stop Picking My Mangos
Mango pickers, beware! And look out for a “green, pink, big tooth monster” (“Monster Mash”). Reading Stop Picking My Mangos might give you bad luck — “Knock on the wood” (“I Had a Good Day”) — but it’s sure to bring delight as well. Picture Prince singing with Lady Gaga. Picture a million pairs of shoes. Hear how noisy the world is: “loud as bubblegum,” as one author puts it. These writers capture many sensations, from a car accident to the feeling of putting on new heels: “They make a loud click-clack click-clack. I feel beautiful!” (“My Heels”).
