***Watermelon Watch 2006***
This is normally Pookie's gig, but I had a confirmed sighting kids!
Last NIGHT (I'm talking like 9:00pm) a friend and I were coming from dinner and were walking towards the nearest 6 train entrance.
I was yammering on and on and suddenly he said, "Oh. My. God." and stopped me with the old mom's-arm-across-the-chest-when-the-car-stops-quickly move.
"What?" I asked, kind of annoyed.
"Look!" he exclaimed.
And there she was. In a Starbucks. Nowhere near the Starbucks where Pookie has been seeing her. LWL. That's right, Linda, the Watermelon Lady.
"Get your phone!" my friend cried. "Hurry! She's finishing up!"
Sure enough she was. I got the phone and whipped it out as fast as I could. What you see here (admittedly, not my best camera phone work) is LWL putting her watermelon (it was about 1/4 a watermelon), with plastic utensils and all, into a bag. You can make out the red and green (and white) clearly.
She is most likely homeless, but definitely crazy. She had all sorts of bags full of sh!t beside her and her hair was all jammed up.
She is now a NYC phenomenon.
