Freshly milked

Resting under a 25-foot-high tree, a Balinese farmhand saw a passing tourist.

Pointing upwards, he ventured, “Coconut? $2.”

“Sure,” said the tourist, grabbing her camera. “For an extra $2, can I photograph you?”

“Can.”

As the tourist clicked away, the farmhand plucked a coconut—from an adjacent 6-foot-high tree.
