It seems I got so caught up in all the 4th of July festivities and nice weather that I forgot to wish everyone a happy National Watermelon Month. Who knew July was National Watermelon Month? Not me until a few weeks ago, but I sure am glad I discovered that nugget of knowledge because it gives me the opportunity to eat watermelon morning, noon and night and have a good excuse for doing so. Not that I ever really needed an excuse to justify my behavior in the past, but you know what I mean.
I’m trying to think of a way to celebrate Watermelon Month, besides eating lots of watermelon (which I will do). If you have any ideas, let me know with a comment!
So get out there, grab some watermelon and enjoy July. If we end up having too much fun, I might petition the watermelon powers-that-be to make August National Watermelon Month too (although some people have already christened August as watermelon month).
Oh, one way you can celebrate is by finding a cool watermelon photo online and making it your computer desktop wallpaper to proudly proclaim your watermelon love to co-workers, friends and family members. If they say anything, just tell them it’s National Watermelon Month. I’m using the rather abstract photo found here. It looks sort of like a satellite image of planet Watermelon.
