We bought one this weekend and it sat on our counter, slowly getting soft. I kept looking at it thinking, "I should probably eat that." But I could never bring myself to do it. Then this morning I cut into it thinking I'd have a refreshing, juicy breakfast. The smell made me gag. I didn't remember cantaloupe smelling like that. then I bit into it - tasted fine, just like I remembered cantaloupe tasting, but somehow I didn't like it. And now I'm sitting here at my desk and I have the grossest taste in my mouth. I can't even describe it. It's disgusting. I think I might be over cantaloupe.
