I made this monster while getting a bone marrow transplant. My monster likes watermelon and bananas. He also likes pears.

Prankster Gangster

A prank that I saw recently on a video goes something like this…If you know a friend who likes watermelon, here’s what to do…Cut the watermelon in half, hot dog style. Then you take all the red stuff out of the watermelon. Then you put the cover back over it and pretend it’s a full watermelon. Put it in the frig. Wait for your friend to come and pick up the watermelon. Let them cut it to find nothing inside! PS: This is a perfect prank if you like watermelon.
