For anyone who lives in Canada and America you will have no doubt seen or heard of those strange photos of weird and wonderful people who shop in WalMart (here is the link), well I have a feeling if they bring out video's of people doing strange things in WalMart, yours truly will have a star role.
I don't know about you but this years crop of watermelon's have been very hitty missy. I have yet to have one that is good. I have had to take one back as it was very mealy and soft inside. So last Thursday we had our condo phase BBQ. I had to take a dessert so slices of watermelon sounded like a good plan, plus it required minimum preparation from me.
Off I go to WalMart and decided to ask the produce guy for tips on how to buy the perfect watermelon. His advice was slap it? I was a little puzzled by this as I normally knock on it with my knuckles. So I asked him to help me. There we are standing over the bin of watermelon's slapping them on their butts.
After a few seconds I turned to the guy and said:
"you do know that if the security guys are watching us on their camera, they are going to be wondering what we are doing; and you do know that we could end up on Facebook or Youtube!"
I could be famous one day.....but not for the right reason though!!
P.S. The BBQ was actually pretty good.
