All that and a bag of chips -- well not the chips -- but I couldn't believe the size of this watermelon for $2. I think it's the biggest one I've bought in years! I usually buy the little ones because they're so dang expensive a pound! I thought it would probably be overripe, but it's actually quite good! I had to cut the thing into bite size chunks and store it in multiple containers because it wouldn't fit into the fridge otherwise!
This watermelon reminds me of the county fair when I was a kid. Some organization (can't remember which one) would sell raffle tickets for a huge watermelon -- a gigantic freak of nature thing that they had on display. One year my dad won it! My parents had all their friends over that night for watermelon.
I also remember that night vividly because I'd ridden the Tilt-a-Whirl earlier and wasn't up to eating anything! In fact . . . . I'll just let you imagine the rest of the story!
