watermelon

If you’re in Gauteng right now, you’ll know that it’s unbearably hot today. It’s too hot to even think of food, to be frank. All that’s going in my head is an endless triangular kaleidoscope of red, green and black. I don’t even particularly like watermelon, or most melon in general, but right now, I want to be inside of one.  It’s alright when it’s stuffed with Vodka, I suppose. Interestingly, the watermelon appears to have originated, or be native to, Southern Africa – spreading around the world thanks to European colonialists in the 1500s. Beyond a bit of sugar and a smattering of vitamin C, is about as nutritious as eating sand. As its name suggests, it’s 91% water, with the rest of it made up of fruit sugars and sadness.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
