Should we stop eating watermelons?
Mum: There’s a cantaloupe outbreak in Colarado.
Dad: There is an outbreak of Listeria bacteria but you could easily get the same from watermelon or any fruit on the ground.
Mum: Does that mean we should stop eating watermelons?
Dad: The risks are low. It would be useful to wash fruits with a mild bleach solution.
I think my eyes rolled so far back that they just spun around in my eye sockets. Sometimes I really think that my parents fear so many things that they barely even enjoy life. It makes me want to stuff my face with cantaloupes.
