Watery Melon

I write posts (or start them), but then I forget to publish them. This morning, I noticed this particular post. There is nothing special about it, but it's too weird to not share. (Sorry about that awful music in the background. I think it got added automatically somehow, but I don't have time right now to edit it.) Cheers!

Yesterday, we picked up a watermelon from Costco after church. It seemed fine. Nice dull sound when knocked. Yellow (not white) spot where it had been sitting on the ground. Light ridges when we ran our fingers over it. After we brought it home, we put it on the kitchen counter and just left it there.

Later that evening, I noticed that someone had spilled ketchup all over it. So I wiped it up, and the watermelon continued to sit there. About an hour later, there was more ketchup all over it. Weird. I wiped it up again.

Another hour passes, and I'm putting dishes away when out of the corner of my eye, I see a squirt of red oozing out of the melon. I press on it, and there is a huge squishy spot on it.

Now I've never seen a melon fountain before, but my kids thought it was hilarious. So for your pure entertainment, here is what we saw.
