I'm apparently wrong. From WebMD:
Watermelon is everyone’s favorite summertime fruit. But because it is so naturally sweet, some people avoid it because they think it's high in sugar.
Elizabeth Ward, RD, author of Expect the Best, says watermelon should be a staple in everyone’s diet. "It is fun to eat, sweet, juicy, low in calories, and chock full of vitamins C and A, potassium, and lycopene. Because it is so high in water, it helps meet fluid needs."

Ok, but it's still not ~my~ favorite summertime fruit!

Mern: Congrats to grandson, sorry about the car. Glad no one was hurt.
