Now imagine all of that in watermelon instead. Two entire pickup beds covered in melons. That would be over 100 of those babies. And these are not the nice little basketball sized ones. They were huge, almost as big as my youngest child.
Within minutes we had a buyer, and then another, and then another. It was a slow trickle of interested eaters.
And then a guy drove up and counted how many we had left, and said, "Ill take them all" in a lovely Australian (?) accent. I think it was Australian b/c he said, "No worries" and really, who else says that?! So we loaded up his little 2 door car and he paid my son, whose eyes were bugging out by all that cash, and we cleaned up and went home.
And had ice cream.
I think the kids will want to do it again next week. The college savings is coming along nicely now.
