Being Square is Really Sweet.
We went to the store the other day and saw one of the more interesting sights we have seen. A square watermelon. Now over the years I have heard that they exist. But that is in the realm of the imaginary creature. Square watermelons, unicorns, etc... but we were there at the store and sitting up on top of the deli case, there it was, the elusive, magical, square watermelon. Now to be honest it was not so much a square as it was a cube, but that is hardly important. What is important is the fact that it was unnatural, in all it's cubical brilliance magnificence it mocked us from its perch on the store self. Taunting and heckling us, begging and pleading with us, urging us to purchase and consume. I am proud to say that we did not give in to the pressure. The big deterrent was the lack of a price tag. In a place were a melon can easily cost more than one hundred dollars we figured, "If you have to ask; you can't afford it."
I also went to take a picture of the "bug" section of the toy department. One interesting things we have seen in the stores are bugs. Stores sell giant beetles. The beetles are the big fighting beetles. I went hoping to get a picture of the beetles themselves, but unfortunately they were all gone. But I did manage to get a photo of the display where they sell the supplies. I thought that it was interesting.
