I can never look at a freshly cracked open coconut without wondering how the first person to discover it would've felt. Here's this hard, furry thing that has a super fibrous outer layer which I am sure he (who am I kidding, it was most likely a she) went through great difficulty to pry open. Then there's another hard nut-like thing and she cracks it open somehow and finds that it's leaking an almost clear liquid. Cautiously she tastes a few drops and realises it's sweet and delicious. But oh boy, she needs to go through all that trouble again because she wasn't prepared to collect it intact the first time around.
PS: If Kerala is God's Own Country, then coconut is God's Own Food, right? Right!
