SQUARE watermelons? My daughter who was just up to Athens for a visit told me about square watermelons, that in China perhaps it was that when watermelons get to a certain size they bind them so that they continue growing as squares. I had trouble believing that but when I looked it up on Google I discovered that on the internet you can purchase square watermelon seeds. The two stories don’t quite fit together, and maybe the seed ad was a joke, but what do you think? I’m tempted to reject the idea out of hand but then I’m an old fogey I know. I don’t like messing with nature or much else, but politics.
COIN dollar bills? She also brought with her some coins that said they were one dollars worth of USA money. I didn’t believe her, and insisted she try to buy something at Seaman’s next door with them. She was successful, to my surprise. They sure do different down south! I had suspected they were bitcoins or something. At my recent birthday party, which she threw for me, no one had heard of such a thing, either.
