1- For some weird reason it seems to help with the unending nausea that I am currently experiencing about a bajillion times a day.
2- I actually find the smell quite delightful. Unlike just about every other single food on the planet. With the exception of grilled cheese.
3- Unlike other BFF’s I could name, Watermelon won’t abandon me as a date in favor of an on again/off again boyfriend. What? It totally happened.
4- It is helping with my fruit quotient. Not that I really need any help because fruits and veggies are about all I can stomach,except for the aforementioned grilled cheese.
5- It is also fun for AFTER you are done being pregnant because I have heard that you can pour a bottle of likker in it and, get this , eat the fruit! I have never actually done so, well I am pretty sure I haven’t, but hey you could is all I’m saying. Watermelon is an equal opportunity fruit.
6- You can have it year round. Which in my case will come in pretty darn handy.
7- Fortunately, you can also have the flavor of watermelon anytime. Watermelon Jolly Rancher, anyone? That makes driving and eating watermelon not such a hazard.
8- I’m pretty sure it is low cal. Are you seeing all these benefits?
9- Watermelon now comes in seedless varieties. If you feel you are now of an age where it would be considered undignified to be seen spitting out your seeds. I do not have such a problem.
10- Show me someone who doesn’t love the melon! It is un-american, I say. Give me watermelon or give me death. Okay, that may be pushing it a bit. I just heart it so.
Thank you, thank you very much. Try the veal, I’ll be here all week.
