watermelon

Binge fruit eating

I’m not a big fruit eater. There are many days where my recommended daily healthy food intake is all vegetable no fruit. There are many days where it’s neither.

When I do eat fruit I go on fruit binges. A month or so ago it was bananas. I ate about six in one day. I didn’t feel very well.

This week it’s watermelon. We had just watermelon for dinner one night. And I’ve had watermelon (and only watermelon) for lunch four days this week.

I’m worried I’ll end up looking like this previously featured watermelon head.

Are there serious health concerns that come from eating too much watermelon?

Water melon

There are people out there who aren’t blessed with a Bob Hawke head drink dispenser.

But don’t despair. You can have a great Australian summer party with your very own watermelon drink dispenser…

Here’s how

What you’ll need:

  • Hose Bibb, Quarter Turn (that’s the tap)
  • Faucet Lock Nuts (those black circles)
  • Brass Pipe Nipple 1/2″ (the piece with threads on both ends)
  • Coupling 1/2″ (what looks like a hex nut)
  • Drill bit (optional)
  1. Cut a small hole in the top of the melon large enough to accommodate an ice cream scoop and your hand.
  2. Remove all the yummy insides and place in a blender.
  3. Drill a hole in the bottom/side of the watermelon large enough to accommodate the brass pipe nipples.
  4. Attach your hardware (hose bibb on the outside, coupling on the inside).
  5. Blend the watermelon “meat” with whatever else and fill your new dispenser.

I will hire out the Bob Hawke head for Labour Parties… or anything else. I bought it for 25c at a garage sale on my second weekend in Townsville.
