Asterisk club #1

In eighth grade one time, someone at my lunch table told the story of how a kid he knew swallowed some watermelon seeds and then a watermelon started growing inside his stomach.

Perhaps it speaks to my sense of imagination, but I believed it for least 15-30 seconds. I mean, a watermelon! Growing inside your stomach! It’s like the perfect space!

But then it didn’t seem quite right, so I dismissed the reality of it. I still love the story though and will sometimes try it out on kids (and occasionally adults) to see what they think.
