My Size Watermelon

Koji loved this watermelon I ordered from the grocery delivery co-op a few weeks ago, and it's easy to see why: it was just his size! We ate it in a jiffy, and I wanted another, but alas, at the market today they were quite a bit more expensive than the co-op. Not to mention even a little melon would have felt American-sized, had I carried it home in my backpack. There wasn't room in my backpack anyway, what with the five kilos (eleven pounds) of rice, two liters of ginger ale, and a liter each of milk and juice already in residence!

i remember when everything was "mikko-size". (mikko-size chair, mikko-size kabocha, etc.) now what would have been mikko-size is "luca-size", according to big brother.

Hey, we just bought one of those for the first time from Trader Joe's last night. I think we might finally be able to finish off a whole melon now without wasting any.

Mikko doesn't know that plenty of things are way bigger than Mikko size still, which is just as well; the important thing is, he's enjoying being ONIICHAN...speaking of oniichan, let's get ourselves and the kids together soon!!

Knowing those Koji size melons are available at TJs is welcome news. I'm pretty sure they are tastier than their ENORMOUS cousins, the American-sized watermelon!
