Life handed us lemons this week.
In a very literal way. We get a weekly delivery of organic groceries and produce from Planet Organics (a service that we love, btw), and normally we custom order to get the particular produce we want. But this week I forgot to custom order, so instead we got the produce that they picked for us.
Which included four lemons.
Lemons that we didn’t really want or have any use for. Also, we have a lemon tree in our backyard, so they were superfluous as well as being unwanted.
So there was really only one thing I could do:
I made lemonade.
Hot honey lemonade, to be precise. What with the weather being so cold and all.
I mean, what the hell else was I supposed to do? Life had handed me lemons. I don’t really see that I had a choice here. The opportunity was just too perfect.
When life hands you lemons, you damn well make lemonade.
And when life hands you cliches, you gas on about it in your blog.
