Lessons I've Learned in Life

Do you remember when you were young and your mom or dad told you that you couldn't have another piece of watermelon? And you had to eat it right down to the white part! Do those lessons not stick with you to this very day? Mine did until a few years ago. Then I got to thinkin' about that—which is pretty dangerous if you ask hubs or any friend from my ebay group. But I did—think that is. Why did they say those things? My mom also told me I could only have one candy bar. Why? We went to the dentist regularly so there wasn't much chance of all my teeth falling out from rotting.

So now that I'm in my 7th decade of life I've been thinking on it. (Actually, I've thought about it all those years but just the last 10 or 15 I've seriously wondered what was the matter with having 2 candy bars if I wanted them. Or to just cut a watermelon into quarters and have at it, just eating the heart out of it.

Well, I've been set free, chicks!!! Yeeeesssss, I cut it into quarters and ate a one quarter of the melon but I did eat right down to the white part because I wanted ALL of it. I am also wondering why in the world this was labeled a "seedless" watermelon.

Excuse me while I find 2 candy bars..........
