Five Things...Maybe Four

Five things society at large enjoys, but that I, for the most part, just don't get...or enjoy...


MELONS-I think they smell like garbage. No matter if they are fresh or not, they remind me of rotting garbage. Watermelon, cantelope, honeydew...I can't stand a one. The most appalling of all is artificially flavored watermelon candy, gums, or sorbets. I used to have to fill the sorbet machine at the frozen yogurt shop that I worked at in high school and college with watermelon sorbet. I would gag. The worst is when the melon is mixed with the other fruit. I am that awful person that picks for the strawberries and grapes in a fruit salad. When restraurants offer a side of fruit, it is usually all melon. Jerks.

I completely agree with you on this one. Can't stand melons of any variety. Watermelon candy is okay if there's nothing else available, but that's as close as I'll go to a melon.

I can't stand any melons except for watermelons. And I too am revolted by any and all artificially flavored melon products.

I love cantelopes and watermelons, but I hate honeydew. But when it comes to watermelon candy and chewing gum, like you, I must draw the line. When my children came home with the stuff—the very first time—I took one breath and promptly created a new house rule: You will not chew that stinking stuff in my house or within 50 yards of me outdoors.
