Post #26 - Evil Mini Cantaloupe

OK, so I knew I was allergic to cantaloupe. If I have even one bite, my throat swells and I start wheezing like a dying asthmatic. But I eat it anyway, because the problems pass in about 15 minutes, and the slight discomfort is worth the yummy satisfaction of eating something that causes me pain.

So I saw this absolutely adorable baby cantaloupe at the local market (that's him next to a 16oz Arizona tea). He's literally 4 inches in diameter.

I picked him up, and tucked him in the crook of my arm, as I wandered around the market. When I got to the checkout, I noticed my arm was itchy. The arm that the cute adorable baby little cantaloupe was resting upon. I looked down. Not only was it itchy, it was red. Blotchy. Little bumps, like flea bites.

So, not only can I not eat the baby cantaloupe, apparently I can't even hold him. Little bastard.

Hi Vicki!
Thanks for visiting my blog! I didn't realize you had a blog. The other times you left comments, your name hasn't been clickable.

I can't believe you'd put up with all those allergic reactions just for cantaloupe. I like it enough, but not enough to deal with closed throat and rashes! That's dedication lady!
