I had a pear yesterday and was disappointed by it. In fact, pears are always a let down. I had let this particular pear sit for a few days and it seemed perfectly ripe, but it was anything but. Come to think of it, even when pears are ripe they're not very good, they're too wet and kinda crappy.
Word to the wise, an apple a day keeps the doctor away but a pear will just piss you off!
