Melon


My Swedish friends showed up in the university cafeteria with a big Furano melon. They had got this melon as a gift from a bar they passed. It was not easy to cut the melon with the cafeteria knives, but the melon was very good.

I mentioned that I used to be allergic to lychee and to melons, causing my throat to close up when I ate such things. I also mentioned that I seem to have outgrown that allergy, and things seem fine even when eating such things now.

After I mentioned this, every single action of mine that was the slightest out of the ordinary was taken as a sign that I was suffocating and probably dying.
