One of our favorite summer fruits is watermelon. That sweet, juicy melon really hits the spot on hot summer days. Today my kids decided to have a "picnic" out on our front porch. They got out the picnic blanket, food, and an assortment of odds and ends and made themselves comfortable.
I decided to cut up the big melon that was sitting on our kitchen counter. My kids must have smelled it, because they came running in begging for a slice. I gave them each a big piece and warned them not to let it drip on the ground. "That's a sure way to attract ants," I said.
So they went back out onto the porch. Now my little guy is a very messy fellow. He just can't help himself. Of course he had watermelon juice all over his face and all over the ground. You know what that means: Ants! Sure enough, they came, marching in their little formation right up to the front porch to get a drink.
"Ants!" my daughter screamed.
What did my son do? He crawled right up to them and dripped more juice on them. "Look," he said, "they want a picnic too!"
