Melon Belly

There's something you need to know if you ever visit this house. Anything you say can and WILL be used against you. If you mis-pronounce something? You'll be mocked repeatedly. Make a comment before you realize it made no sense? Too late. It's ammunition for the smart alecks on this house.

Today, we were eating the last of the Israeli melon, because I needed the bowl that it was in. I kept telling the kids to eat a piece when they walked by. I had more than I wanted, and I announced, "Wow, I have a belly full of melon." That's all it took.

Kevin said, "Oh, is that your blues name? Melon Belly?" Everyone laughed. Pretty soon, everyone was making reference to it. If I was going to pick a nick name for myself, I'm quite certain it wouldn't be Melon Belly.

I'm just sayin'.

I wouldn't like being called Melon belly either, but even worse....Katy and George say they have "food babies" in their stomach. Gross. You can imagine why b/c they will be birthing them later. They thought this one up on vacation and I cringe every time I hear them say "wow I got a food baby in there". lol Thanks for being my FIRST follower on the new public blog! woo hoo.
