Mutant Eggplants

I have no interesting home projects in store for this weekend, just long dreary stretches of time working at the library on my dissertation. (Meeting with the advisor on Wednesday.) But I did go out to look at the eggplants. They're all long and skinny. I wonder if they're ripe now, or if they'll get fatter like the eggplants in the supermarket?

I'm trying to think of something to say that doesn't sound like I'm making a dirty joke, but it all sounds dirty...

They look like Japanese eggplants, which stay long and skinny and no, won't get fat like the eggplants you usually see in stores. They're probably ripe now--you can use them just as you would any eggplant.
