Dirty Dancing in the Kitchen
Baby: I carried a watermelon. (Dirty Dancing – 1987)
So, everyone knows that baby carried a watermelon, right?
Well, what is ever so slightly less well-known, is this…
I carried a Zucchini.
That’s right, a great BIG freakin zucchini – grown organically (none the less) by my MIL. (Mother in law, if you are reading this…that’s you…okay?)
Since dressing this garden vegetable in clothing and wheeling it into the shopping centre tomorrow in a pram, just to see how many people will lean in to admire my baby, might be considered a) socially unacceptable, b) a wee bit creepy and c) a waste of good food, I will contain myself.
It would be bloody funny though, wouldn’t it?
So, that being said, I am at a loss to know what to do with it.
What would you suggest I do with this mammoth vegetable, (please don’t be smutty!) for those occasions when my family starts to look at me with those hungry eyes?
