The Day we ate Santa Claus

Dick loves melons. (that's a funny sentence.)
He loves all melons - cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew, etc.,

Last week, he bought a new melon (to us) named "Santa Claus".

It's an odd name for a melon, right?

We were speculating that it would probably be red on the inside (since it is green on the outside). We wondered, "What will Santa Claus taste like?"

So, yesterday morning, we ate Santa Claus.

It turns out that Santa Claus is orange inside, very much like cantaloupe. It was VERY ripe, so the consistency was very soft. Much softer than a cantaloupe, but we're not sure if it's just because we waited a little too long to eat him.... er..., I mean to it "it".

So, there you have it. We ate Santa Claus. :)
