Note from the artist:

I was very fortunate to be able to grow up with a grandmother by my side.  She taught me many things and one of which was how to choose a good watermelon.  When I was young, my grandmother and I would go to the supermarket every Thursday afternoon.  The first time I saw my grandmother slap a watermelon I was about 6 years old.  I remember telling my grandmother that she was hurting it by slapping it so hard.  She turned to me and said if she didn’t slap it, she wouldn’t know if it was a sweet and fresh one.  She then took my tiny hand and slapped it against the melon.  She told me to remember the sound and the feeling of the slap. She said if the slap bounced back onto your hand, then it was a good melon.  I still do this today. (Note: Later that day after coming back from the supermarket, I slapped my grandmother on the butt, and I told her that her butt was fresh because the slap bounced back.  Needless to say, I got in trouble.  But it was pretty funny.)
