The other week I was cutting some fresh fruit for a potluck breakfast here at work. Strawberries, grapes, bananas and cantaloupe. I knocked out the first three without issue but when I cut into the cantaloupe I about threw up.
The seeds inside a fruit or vegetable gross me out in a way I am rarely grossed out. The same thing happened last fall when I was cutting a pepper:
I can handle cucumber seeds, apple seeds, pear seeds, watermelon seeds, etc. But when I open the fruit or vegetable in question and all the seeds are lined up neatly like a row of feasting maggots, consider me disgusted.

Am I the only one who looks at these pictures and wants to BARF?


  1. No, this grosses me out too.

  2. This has nothing to do with fruits, both cantalope and Aiken, but I noticed that Damaged made it on your iTunes list.

    Do you remember when I called you and sang that song? It was really early in the morning like 6 months ago.

  3. Not only do those gross me out, but the inside of a pomegranate does as well - yikes!

  4. If you and Jennie are grossed out by the insides of a fruit,I guess I will never get to be a Grandma.

  5. I've never thought twice about the inside of fruits or veggies, but that cantaloupe does look kind of ... exposed. I see what you mean.

    lj'smom -- hahahahaha!

  6. The cantaloupe seeds look like the inside of a shark's mouth, and the pepper seeds look like what I imagine cancer looks like inside the body. You know you think so too.


Oh goody!
