I had half a watermelon sitting in the fridge that I needed to slice and store away. I was not looking forward to the task ahead, as I always make a mess slicing, cutting the rind off and chopping into pieces. The juice gets everywhere, and it always ends up taking more time than it should.
Then, Mr. B turned to me and said, "Why don't you use an ice cream scoop?"
Well, duh! Why hadn't I thought of that? Five minutes later, the half melon was scooped out and packed away without much of a mess and little waste.
I tell you, he's a genius!
