I Carried A WatermelonEdit
The Watermelon Festival took place this past Saturday in the park. Even I’m getting a little too old for such a twee event. I used to love the Watermelon Festival. Like looooove. But as I’ve gotten older, it’s only gotten more and more infantile. No one’s to blame here. This is a perfect festivity for little kids and their parents. There are tons of easy carnival games as well as a bunch of arts & crafts stations. This year I made earrings with plastic watermelons hanging from them. I will wear them ironically, of course. Additionally, there were lots of watermelon-inspired food and beverages for sale. The watermelon slushies were delicious. However, the fried watermelon was disgusting. Some things should just not be fried. Overall, the Watermelon Festival was a pleasant event but way too babyish for a fourteen year old like myself.
Ed note: The recent melon epidemic was due to tainted cantaloupe. Watermelon was not affected so there should be no worries.
