Looks like we’re heading into cherry season here in Kafkaville. Cherry season, for those of you who don’t know, lasts exactly 17 minutes. During those 17 minutes, cherries are free, or near free. Every street corner has its babička selling cherries, and stores can’t give ’em away.

But outside of cherry season, they cost something like 300 crowns per basket. I have a hit-and-miss record when it comes to taking full advantage of cherry season, but I hope to get at least one basket this time around.
