A Fruit to Remember

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a watermelon. I thought it might be cool to be green and peely, and all watery inside. I figured it was perfectly normal to want to have your life goal to become a fruit, I guess I just wasn't aware people didn't usually want to be oranges, or apples, or grapes when they grew up. Watermelons though, I never found a person who didn't want to be a watermelon.

Watermelons are multi functional:
You can poke a hole, pour in alcohol of your choice let it sit, and you have your very own spiked watermelon.
Make a fruit basket, like the picture above, just cut the watermelon in chunks, scoop out the middle and put any fruit you like in the basket!
Watermelon Ice, take some watermelon, make it into watermelon juice and freeze it for some awesome watermelon fun.
Watermelon Green Tea, I just found out about this concoction today, some kiosk in the mall (Freshly Squeezed) had this watermelon green tea thing, so I tried one. The seller dude asked me if I wanted it regular or slushie, slushie was the way to go (it has ice).

Whatever way you choose to eat your watermelon, don't forget that an orange straw goes a long way.

  1. Haha, I'm so amused that you wanted to be a watermelon. So cute. That reminds me of when I was little and my mom asked my brother what he wanted to be when he grew up: a foot stool. XD Oh dear.

    Anyhow, as a big watermelon fan, I'm intrigued by this watermelon green tea. I might have to have a go at it!
