Laughing As I Look Back...

When I was three years old I remember eating a watermelon and swallowing all the seeds. I knew seeds grew into roots which grew into plants, then I panicked. Oh no, I thought, maybe they are going to grow in my stomach. So I asked my aunty if a watermelon would grow in my stomach and she said yes. In fact she said that it would grow and it would explode and kill me. I laugh now because I have my own children and sometimes I can also exaggerate  Good thing children have short memories because I think I forgot about it ten minutes after I panicked about it.
