A good melon is hard to find

According to La Cucina Italiana magazine, a popular saying in Italy goes like this:

“Nella vita di un uomo ci sono tre cose difficili da avere: un buon amico, una buona moglie e un buon melone”

which translates to:

“There are three difficult things to have in a man’s life: a good friend, a good wife and a good melon.”

Now, we just had a delicious melon this afternoon. Your thoughts on the other two? What’s more difficult to find?

    For someone like Michael, I’m sure he’s mastered both 🙂 But he’s not the average by any means…for the rest of em? Probably both!

    Ha! I love this expression….too true, and I agree with you…the melon is probably the easiest to find. Truly blessed are those with all 3.
