I’ve featured quotes about watermelon here on the blog in the past (here, here, and here). It’s something I had planned to do on a semi-regular basis, but then I realized something: As awesome as watermelon is, there aren’t that many good quotes about it. (Note to quotable sources: Let’s change that.)
So I’ve decided to take quotes about other things and “edit” them slightly to make them watermelon-specific, starting with today’s quote from Julia Child. Julia was, of course, a renowned chef who was known for bringing French cuisine to the American public, but I like to think she might have also been a fan of watermelon.
Plus, even if you add “watermelon” to her quote like I did above, her words still ring true. Everyone I know who consider themselves a “watermelon lover” are all really nice people. It makes perfect sense, too. Watermelon has a certain happy vibe about it, so anyone who eats a lot of watermelon might have a positive outlook as well.
I know I have a good attitude (or at least try to). And any time I’m feeling a little run down, a watermelon snack always seems to cheer me up. Again, that’s just me, but if you’re the same way, you might be one of the “best people” I know!
