In Other News – 6 October 2015

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.

    When my dad first came to ZA he ate a whole watermelon while drinking in the sun. He passed out & ended up with sun stroke. He never ate watermelon again.

      When we first came to SA, my folks thought watermelons were like normal melons, so we tossed all the pips and red stuff and tried to eat the white parts….
