My friend's husband, John*, decided to venture out to the local Safeway for some desperately needed supplies. My friend, Janet* was in the kitchen when John* arrived home. Well it wasn't until the following morning that John* asked Janet* if she had seen the melon that he had bought from Safeway last night. 'What melon? There was no melon. I don't recall ever seeing a melon. Maybe there was a melon? Is it in the fridge"..........this conversation confirmed, yet again, that Seinfeld - the series, is closer to reality than reality television ever could be! (ok and I must admit that I made up the dialogue).
So the melon is missing! Maybe the melon has been abducted? You can never be too careful nowadays? Maybe the melon ran off to join the circus......'see the incredible melon survive after being shot from a canonball!"
Well Janet* received the phone call at 10.37am. Thank God, the melon has been found. John* had just returned home after running some errands. What does he see as he is driving into his drive-way? Nothing......but he did notice a melon sitting in the neighbors drive-way.
So it was not an abduction after all.....John* went to safeway, came home with the groceries, dropped the melon as he was exiting the car. Though how anyone can drop a full size melon and not notice it, is beyond me?? The melon rolled down the road as John* strolled into the house.
Well the story may not sound so funny to you, but I could not keep a straight face....the melon has since gone on to model stardom. Stay tuned for the pictures from the photo shoot, appropriately titled 'Melon Art'.
