    FACTOID:

    Melons — cantaloupe, honeydew, Crenshaw, watermelon, and a growing number of gourmet varieties — are among the lowest-calorie fruits. They have a high water content and less sugar than other fruits. Cantaloupe is a standout for its vitamin C and vitamin A, two important nutrients that you get mainly from fruits and vegetables. A cup of melon (about the size of a fist) contains between 45 and 60 calories.

    I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”
