(43-329) Melon Lessons
Now fan of fruit that I am; I've never been sure about how to pick them. Obviously I know that I don't want bruised nectarines, or cherries; but when it comes to the melons, other than givin a Cantaloupe or Honeydew a sniff; up until a few days ago, I had no idea how to tell if they were ripe. Funny story about sniffin a fruit. A couple of weeks ago Luis and I were in Sam's Club and I saw some beautiful, Pineapples. I picked one up and went to smell it and man I must have forgotten what I was dealing with because I put that baby so close to my nose that I scratched it up. The Pineapple had a terrific scent, and the center leaf pulled out easily, so we put it in our cart, and I promptly wondered why my nose was hurting. I touched my nose and realized that I had scratched it with the Pineapple and I felt like a first class moron. BUT, I have to say that the Pineapple that bruised me, was indeed delicious.
