Mutant watermelon

Last week, I went out round Shoreditch (daytime) with my husband.  I was wearing a most questionable outfit – yellow shorts, blue top and orange cotton sweater.  I wore my giant sunglasses and pretended that it was because I am a hipster, don’t you know, and not an early middle aged woman with a very strange wardrobe.  I did do that thing where I said “Do I look awful?” to my husband and he said no (he is generally very honest).

On the way home, we stopped off at a grocer on the Essex Road and bought an absolutely massive watermelon.

This was miles bigger than my head

My husband had to carry it home as there was no way I could lift it.  And I am quite strong.  I was a bit taken aback by the price – £10.75!  On the cheapo Essex Road! But this was at least four times bigger than the ones going on Ocado.

The author of Knowing Kimberly pointed out that, should I have carried this myself, I could have pretended to be Baby off Dirty Dancing.  But I hate that film.

We won’t need any more watermelon.  Ever again.
