Manic Melon Man

I have no clue how I forgot this because it cracked me UP at the time!

It's not a secret that Rashan doesn't like cantaloupe but when we went to brunch the Sunday after Thanksgiving things went to new heights. He was joyously munching through his custom omelet as was I my own when he stopped mid-chew.

"What is that?"
"What is what?"
"On my plate. What is that?"
"Oh that's honeydew."
"What is that? Like cantaloupe?"
"Not really but it's nasty, too."
"And is there a piece of cantaloupe next to it?"
*Eyes closed as look of disgust washes over his face.*
"Are you all right?"
"Give me a minute. I need to compose myself."
"Are you not gonna finish your food right now."
"Hold on. Just give me a minute."
*Pausing in amazement and trying not to burst into giggles.*
"Do you want me to take it off your plate?"
"That would help."
I oblige then sit in awe as he continues to compose himself.
"Yeah, I'm straight."
*FALL OUT LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

What can I say, I just hate canteloupe/honeydew and anything that looks like it.

Aww, poor thing!

I have to admit I have the same reaction,...but to oatmeal.

I can't even look at it either.

I feel the same way about watermelon. I don't care how sweet or juicy they might be toted as. I don't want it near ME at all.

That is too funny. I absolutely love cantaloupe and any other melon besides water melon.

I'm cracking up at the fact that he had to compose him self afterward. Hilarious.

Wow. That's a reaction and a half. There are some foods I dislike, but I can handle eating around them if there's some on my plate. Maybe chicken feet would do that to me, although I've never seen them served as a brunch garnish!

Sha Boogie said...
