Lazy Sunday! ;)

Coffee from Black Dog
1/2 Persona watermelon
5 baguette slices baked with gouda
Chips 'n salsa
Jameson with a dash of San Pellegrino, over ice (fine summer drink. Add a dash of maple syrup to this concoction and you have created a cocktail called "SC's Ancestry")
Arclight popcorn
Iced tea
Spaghetti with Ragu Traditional
2 slices baguette
Bite of Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate
1 glass Jacob's Creek Chardonnay
1/2 bottle Jacob's Creek Riesling

Persona watermelons are personal-sized. They are terrific although quite a bit more expensive than a standard watermelon. But slice it in half and you have two bowl-sized hunks of delicious seedless watermelon. One is reminded of Union Civil War general Irwin McDowell. Shelby Foote reports McDowell had a titanic appetite, and once disgusted some of his colleagues by eating an entire fried chicken and then a whole watermelon, pronouncing it "monstrous fine!"

Where would the Persona watermelon fall in the spectrum of "melons man can fuck" in terms of pleasure and ease, with honeydew being at the end of high end?

End of high end? What?

The interior might be a bit too fragile, but it's about the size of a kid's basketball, so one could manipulate it fairly easily.
