Watermelon Anyone?


This is Desmond's grandmother and one of my dearest friends. When I was a child my mother taught us this silly game - you put watermelon seeds on your forehead, you name them after the boys that you like and the one that stays on the longest loves you the most! Maybe the adults just liked seeing the kids run around with watermelon seeds on their foreheads but if I remember correctly my mother played too. A few years ago a girlfriend & I were having a girls weekend at the beach and over breakfast we did this - it raised a few eyebrows in the dining room. Has anyone else played this game? If not, you must try it this summer while you are enjoying watermelon!!

Never heard of it before! Will have to try it the next time we have watermelon! The big thing with watermelon seeds down here is to see we can spit the most seeds on someone else! The adults are the worst ones, it can get vicious at times! LOL!

I faintly remember putting seeds on my forehead. The naming after boys part I don't recall, but I guess we put them there for a reason. Thinking about watermelon seeds made me flashback to lots of memories at my grandma's house.

Oh that is too cute, I have never played it! Maybe I should try it now....anyone have some cowboy names for me, since I seem to be in a shortage around here! ;)

I have never heard of it before. It does sound like a silly game...but we can all use some silly now and then.
