One Of My Wife's Talents
I don't know how she does it so consistently

 9:03 pm on Jan 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

I love a ripe juicy cantaloupe. The ones I pick out are almost universally tasteless.

My wife, on the other hand, seems to be able to select the ripest, juiciest cantaloupe on the shelf. She can even do this when they are not in season.

BTW, I just sliced and ate one that Mrs. lawman picked out the other day. Mmmmmm. She did not let me down. I guess I'll keep 'er. :)

Posters take note:

This thread will get 2x the CTR of normal threads on the active. See what a good title does?

masterful title creation

I wasn't sure I wanted to click this thread

Now this is weird. I just sat down with WebmasterWorld and a hunk of cantaloupe for my afternoon break.

Had to pick it out myself, but appears I got lucky this time, now and juicy and refreshing.

For someone who says he doesnt do SEO
as Jake and jatar_k say ..you are a natural ;)

I clicked ..for two reasons ..

You get to guess them ;))

My wife ( who BTW has near no sense of smell and couldn't tell by smell a melon from a cinder block ..let alone if it was ready ..may be I'm lucky as her nose is about level with my belt buckle ..shes only 1.59 meters tall ;)) saw me click on the page ..open it and fall about in a heap of tears and laughter ..says we are all "reprobates" ..she looked up the translation to be sure that was the word she wanted ..she used the word "obsedé" too ..( lawman can look it up ..Jake knows it already I presume ..;))

We wont actually see cantaloupe available here ( import or otherwise for another 4 months ) ..:(( and it's me who gets to choose them ..

Jake or jatar_k maybe as you're as admins .. you can give us the stats record for this increase in hits to this thread ..

Some folks might might like a record of them if ever they decide to formally present their new CV when they get tired of their present employment ;))

Hold the cantaloupe like you are going to make a two handed pass and with the stem end away from you. Press down gently with your thumbs, if it gives but isn't too squishy then it will be perfect.

Is it wrong to covet another man's melons? Is there such a thing as Fruit Adultery?

Only in the mind, only in the mind...

(Unless scrumping apples, of course, but that's *different*...)

I asked my wife if she could pick a good cantaloupe and she said "I dont like cantaloupe". Oh well, you cant have it all. But ask her about catfish or fried ocra and she knows her southern food.

I wonder what possum belly with a cantaloupe glaze would taste like?

Is there such a thing as Fruit Adultery?

well ..I went for a look on "G" .for "Fruit Adultery" ( with the quotes ) thinking there has to be a domain name there ..and it is still available ..;)) but at # 5 in serp found .. this [angelfire.com]..don't worry it is totally family safe ..inspite of the page title ...and worth the visit ..heh heh ..

the things some people learn html for to do ;))..or maybe it was done with fr*ntpage ..:)

You want to look for a few things when choosing melons

  • It should be heavy for it's size (you may have to try more then one)
  • As noted above it should be firm but not hard or too squishy
  • It should have a pleasant slight mild fruity odor or no odor at all
  • Bigger is not always better
  • Global Options:
