Watermelon - I want you for my love
My family has a story of when my grandfather was on a business trip in China. He was served watermelon, and a woman at the table asked him what it was called in English. He told her "watermelon", and everyone at the table started laughing. The man who spoke the best English explained to my grandfather that there is a Chinese phrase that sounds close to "watermelon" and means "I want you for my love". Does anyone know what this phrase might be?
