Woke up late. Rushed to make it to breakfast. Saw a surprise on my tray: right there was a thick slice of cold cantaloupe. It was perfectly ripe and juicy. The meal got even better when two guys at my table offered me their slices of cantaloupe too. I hadn't eaten cantaloupe in 22 years. Can't wait to tell my mom— she loves cantaloupe.
