Yesterday, I attempted to lift a watermelon with one arm while shopping at Costco.
It didn’t happen, and I admit to spending way too much time fondling the watermelons trying to accomplish this task.
(Eventually I used TWO arms … which I’m regretting still because – ouch!)
I was buying watermelon for Fred and Frank … both of my Newfies LOVE watermelon!
While I was hovering around the fruit department, I overheard a Costco employee discussing how to pick out the best watermelon to another shopper.
I tried to eavesdrop for a minute just in case there was a Secret Watermelon Picking Tip I didn’t already know.
(In hindsight, why did I do this? I already know how to pick a good watermelon!)
The other shopper walked away and the Costco employee began chatting with me.
“Did I hear you say there are male and female watermelons?” I asked him.
“Yes!” he replied, smiling.
He then proceeded to explain to me “female” watermelons are much tastier than male watermelons.
He told me a female watermelon “has rounder curves, almost like a circle vs. the longer shape of male watermelons.”
Next, he described to me all the details of a female watermelon.
Well, it would have made a sailor blush.
Inside my head, I told myself, “He’s just describing a watermelon Suzanne. Stop sexualizing his description!”
But, his description was very … sexual.
An hour later I was at home googling “female” and “male” watermelons.
There is no such thing.
I bet I made his day. (!!)
By the way, I still blush when I think about some of the things he said …
And I just stood there nodding the entire time.
