Again with the Lemons

By now you have likely heard every single lemon phrase or quote known to lemonkind. Actually, you probably have heard all of them if you've read this blog and the deleted blog. Here's the thing:"When life gives you lemons, it sucks, but don't suck on the lemons." Okay, so I just made that up about five minutes ago. What I mean is that when life gives you crap and life sucks to the extreme point, then you don't have to MAKE IT WORSE. You don't have to EAT THE STUPID LEMONS. You don't have to do ANYTHING with them. You don't have to make lemonaide, you don't have to make grape juice. You can just IGNORE THE DAMN LEMONS! Yes, they are lemons. Yes, life gave them to you. No, you don't have to pay them a moment of your attention. They are stupid LEMONS for crying out loud! If you get a lemon in real life, what do you do? You thow the thing OUT! It. Is. Just. A. Lemon. Except that it seems that people think that metaphorical lemons are like these super lemons that come back to you whenever you throw it away. It's true, they do come back. But you can just ignore them! They wont go away, but maybe they'll roll down a hill. I mean, they are rollical. So yeah. You don't have to eat the lemons...you don't have to feel bad when something bad happens. No, it's not your choice. Sometimes the lemons go a squirt themselves in your eyes. But still....if you can ignore them, ignore them. They're just lemons. I mean, if they go squirting themselves in your eyes, IGNORE IT....you know, if you can...

Hmmm...My personal favorite is "When life hands you lemons...chuck them at your unsuspecting brother's head then sit back and laugh your ace off while he tries to figure out why the heck lemons are falling from the sky." But yours works too! LoL.
