“frequently, but without discernible regularity, there is a smashed coconut on the intersection of Harewood and Rock Creek Road”

“Dear PoPville,

Here’s an old mystery for a new year. I’ve lived in what is technically “university heights” for 7+ years, and walk down the hill to Petworth regularly. And frequently, but without discernible regularity, there is a smashed coconut on the intersection of Harewood and Rock Creek Church Road. Just in front of the cemetery gate but in the road. Just one coconut. And usually not a whole one.

I know this isn’t breaking news, but it’s been bothering me for so long that I started keeping and eye out for cart vendors dropping their wares (no sighting) or enthusiastic monkeys. Hopefully you and your readers can help me solve this, so I don’t go coconutty.”

Ed. Note: There’s a fruit vendor often in front of Red Derby, or at least used to be, and ordering a whole coconut from him is one of life’s little pleasures.
