In the future, scientists will breed a cantaloupe that recognizes its name, and will approach when called. The poor will not afford this costly fruit, but the better-off will be seen by the size and adoration of their melons. Note that it is groomed to roll toward its strongest attractor in steadfast loyalty. What beast, what dog, is so selfless as to draw toward the creature that will consume it?

And this is different from reality for almost all women in what way, exactly?

They are not named as often.

On another note, we had a friend who was very proud of her melons, and displayed them at every opportunity. We named them "on-off/volume" and "tuning."

This is apparently the newest spin on the "moth to flame" analogy. I give it a 9.8 for originality and it's also tipping my Residual Internal Angst meter. ;)

Yay, originality :) Such an overworked metaphore, I figger nobody's used cantaloupe, and it's one of my favorite fruits. I'm really not sure where I was going with that, though--started with cantaloupe rolling downhill, it just kind of went off from there.
