Another Fruit, Please!

I do not find lemons to be objectionable,
but I never much liked lemonade.
I have always felt that I should love lemonade
because people talk about it’s refreshing and tangy qualities.
So, I try it over and over hoping to live the experience that others speak of.
It has always left my mouth dry and craving a big glass of water.
I think this is why the term when life hands you lemons, make lemonade has always been a troublesome statement for me.

What is someone who doesn’t like lemonade supposed to do
with a bucket full of lemons?
The epiphany has finally hit me.
I love limes, cherries, grapefruit, cantaloupe, oranges, peaches, pears,
berries, bananas, grapes and so many other wonderful fruits.
have to…

I think that when life hands me lemons,
I am going to throw them back with gusto.
Give me a great big bowl of fruit salad with whipped cream on top.
Now I’m happy.

Was just lying in bed thinking about how much I don’t like lemonade and thought about the old saying. I really have had issues with it!
