Courtesy of welcome to the nubbin:
I love the ritual of peeling an orange. the smell, the stickiness, the taste. and I just discovered that the inner skin of orange pieces is really nice to touch. it feels a lot like people skin. like the inside of your arm, near your elbow.
You are so right! I am big on oranges, too, (see also Recurrent Obsessions) and I'm glad I'm not the only one to savor this subtle, transcendent, sublime pleasure.
Or maybe there's just two of us freaks.
