First bite of watermelon in decades took me back to childhood

@jezlyn do you happen to remember the watermelon e.coli (or maybe it was salmonella) breakout in the late 80s or early 90s?

Anyways, I got sick.

And my kids were super sensitive to it (no more than a few pieces otherwise it looked like a bloodbath) … so we stopped eating it.

@Dananner Oh wow, I don't remember that outbreak. That's awful that you got sick from that. 😮 Glad you're able to eat it again.

@Dananner They are so delicious and I should have them much more often. The best in hot weather.
