I went camping this past weekend, and the weather was actually pretty nice. A little warm – maybe even what you’d call “hot” – which is why I was glad my wife convinced me to pack an extra cooler full of drinks and watermelon. You didn’t think I’d go camping without watermelon, did you?
I fell in the creek while I was fishing, which helped me stay relatively cool (even if I looked decidedly uncool while I was flailing around in the water), but I could have used this week’s watermelon prize, too.
It’s a battery-powered, hand-held fan shaped like a little watermelon guy (available on Amazon.com). The fan is perfect for a trip to the ballpark, campsite, or wherever you might need a little breeze to cool you down. Said one Amazon reviewer: “I was very surprised at how much air it puts out. […] I found it good enough to cool me down when I’m having a hot flash.”
I’ll give it away to one commenter chosen at random from all the comments left on the blog this month. Good luck…and, if you go fishing any time in the near future, don’t forget to wear a life jacket.
