Today's Review: Eating Melon

I bought a melon today, haven't done that in a while. Sure, I've had the chunks that you get in fruit salads and the like, but not an actual whole melon. I like the idea of it though. A big old juicy melon, just ripe for the cutting and eating. So I set that bad boy down on the counter, cut myself a slice, and got ready to chow down.

Wait, how do I eat this again? Don't get me wrong, I'm not new to this. I did the whole criss-cross cuts with the knife business. But no matter how deep I dig that knife, no matter how efficiently I pluck that piece of melon out with my teeth, there's always some left over. Sure, I could sit there with a spoon and scoop it out, but I want to bury my face in it and claim victory over that fruit as nature intended. There's just no way to do it without getting juice all over my face.

It's that shape, man, that distinct melon shape that just doesn't gel well with our jawbones. But I guess it's a testament to the melon's tastiness that I want to dig right to the very bottom of the juicy flesh, it's so good I want to be covered in the juices. So yes, it's not too easy to eat a melon with just your face, it's quite messy, but it sure is satisfying.

My rating: 4/5
