As I gathered together my grocery store purchases (void of any hints of buy-one-get-one-free), the 16-year-old cashier girl began scanning the selections of the customer behind me, a woman in her mid-forties.

Cashier girl held something up in the air with both arms. “May I ask what this is?” she said.

“Squash,” said the woman. “An acorn squash.”

“Oh,” said the girl. “I thought it was some kind of onion melon.”

That made me laugh out loud. I’m still giggling.

Ben, I shared this with my family when I was home this weekend and we laughed about it all day long. We’d forget about it for awhile and then somebody would say, “Now what exactly would an onion melon look like, anyway?” and we’d all laugh again. “Would it be an onion the size of a melon, or a melon the size of an onion?” (more laughter). Thanks for sharing the fun this weekend.
