Neither store had casaba melons, so I compromised with a crenshaw from Safeway. Crenshaws are the non-casaba melons most similar to casaba, though I still don't like them as much. Once I cut it, it will have to be refrigerated, which means I'l have to make room for it. My refrigerator is quite stuffed, so that won't be easy. The melon is not quite ripe yet, so it can sit on the counter for a couple of days, though I doubt I'll be able to resist cutting into it tomorrow. It is tantalizing me right now, in fact, but I don't think I'll give in tonight.
I'm a bit surprised I didn't fall asleep early tonight, given all the day's toil and excitement (I pushed a shopping cart! I saw live people!,) not to mention the persistent heat. Indeed, I nodded of several times, but then went in to change into more comfortable clothes, suitable for napping, and somehow that woke me up. My mind grows ever more perverse. Now that it's cooler I can turn off the air conditioner and turn on the fan and open some windows. Maybe if I go out and listen to the crickets chirp for a while I'll get sleepy again.
