Wheel o' Watermelon
So, I admit I'm a bit quirky. But I don't think how I eat watermelon is that quirky. My colleague disagrees. She came in for a meeting and burst out laughing. I have a wheel o' watermelon on a plate, and I use a knife to cut out pieces of it and stick it in my mouth. This is how we did it growing up with those huge long watermelons, with real seeds, not these current wimpy 'seedless' things. A long huge watermelon was gone in an instant, since a family of 8 having at least one inch thick wheels o' watermelon is a lot of watermelon. The ends were never that popular, since you had to use a spoon to get it out and occasionally the watermelon piece would go flying... And so how do YOU eat watermelon?
