Most people compose their Naughty or Nice List before the winter holidays to determine who is going to get presents. I make my list in the summer to decide who will get precious mangos from my trees. I have other fruit, but mango is the king of tropical fruits. People who like mangos, love them. The general ranking criteria follows: for the people who rave about the taste of my mangos or any other of my edibles, they get on the NICE side, which means they will get more. Other good deeds that are unrelated to fruit can also get you on the Nice side. For the people who were unenthusiastic when I gave them the fruits of my labor, whatever those fruits may be, they get on the NAUGHTY side and – you guessed it – they either get no more fruit, are seriously rationed or they get the bruised stuff. Of course, there are other bad deeds that can get you on the Naughty side.
