When life gives you lemons, make something tasty.
I wonder who coined the negative connotation with that original phrase because they obviously didn’t like lemons. While I can’t say that I would eat a lemon like I would an apple I still love their fragrant and bright citrus personality. So do little kids, I remember being at a banquet table somewhere with my littlest brother and he kept asking for more and more lemon wedges. He couldn’t get enough. It was the cutest thing ever.
I was thinking about this phrase because I wanted to share with you all another ‘epic’ post. But due to circumstances outside of my control, the day has taken a different shape. My developer husband has me on a different track than many other WordPress bloggers, where I ‘get to’ try things out first.
As awesome as that may be I’ve decided to turn in my resignation to be a test guinea of some sort. It seemed to be one thing after the other today and the pretty neat post I have for you will have to wait for tomorrow when I don’t want to pull out my hair and start drinking at 2 in the afternoon.
I think if I were to change the phrase I would say, “If life gives you unripe persimmons, spit it out, rinse your tongue (several times) and keep typing”.
There is nothing worse than an unripe persimmon, except perhaps this photo. I had such a bad experience once that I’ve not been able to trust myself with the task of picking them out again.
So I’m off to keep typing and hopefully keep my hands out of my hair.
What would you replace lemons with?
