Eating well

Today I had some very delicious chunks of one of the best watermelons I have ever tasted.

I took a knife to it, a big serrated bread knife, and I began to slice through the green rind. I had cut almost halfway through when the fruit burst of its own accord, spilling juice and very ripe pieces onto my counter top. I grabbed one and popped it into my mouth. And I savored its ripeness. Then I cut off many pieces and gave them to my family.

Crisp, and juicy.

One of the best ways to spend a summer afternoon.
