When Life Hands You A Lemon

There are many options to pursue when life hands you a lemon. 

– Make lemonade

– Hand the lemon to a toddler and giggle at their face when they attempt to lick it

– Finally get around to zesting, so next time you have a recipe that calls for zest of lemon, you will be ready

– Use the lemon as “The Sun” when building the model of the solar system for the neighbor kid’s science project

– Lemon bowling

– Squeeze some into a glass of water, ah now that’s refreshing!

– Keep the lemon incase someone needs to borrow some lemon

– Trade up…go to the store, hand the produce dude the lemon and demand that he give you three limes in return

– Clean your jewelry

– Squeeze some lemon juice into your hair, then go sit in the sun for a while and see if you have highlights

– Carefully spiralize the lemon, place it on your best platter, invite some friends over for dinner and present the lemon on the platter next to a sprig of parsley.  Note their reactions and gain valuable insight.

– Blog about the various uses of lemons at the end of a long, long day.

    Didn’t Jan Brady use it to take off freckles? Oh wait, that didn’t work.

    I love seeing kids’ faces when they lick a lemon. Maybe that is mean but it is too funny!

    Can I have the password to your latest post while I’m at it?

    Squeeze it over some fish filets, any kind.

    I am for the whiskey sour avenue…or walking 15 feet from the person that gave you the “lemon” and then trying to throw it through their face…like my own Mythbusters experiment.

    I sense some inner anger. Here, have a lemon.

    When one of my coworkers at the lumberyard long ago was in the hospital, we sent him a group card. It had a picture of Cosmo from the comic strip “Shoe” and it read “When life hands you lemons…make whiskey sours.”

    Ooh, I like that one!

That's what she said!
