The muse

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

When drinking too much lemonade gives you diabetes, make preserved lemons instead.

When preserved lemons give you canker sores, make Limoncello.

When you become an alcoholic from all the Limoncello, make lemonade again, but don't drink it.

When you have tons of lemonade you cannot drink start a small business selling your artisanal, organic lemonade in small batches at farmer's markets and local co-ops.

When the money starts rolling in from your lemonade company buy nice things and form meaningful relationships.

When your successful business falls apart because life is no longer just gives you lemons, and you have to actually pay for them, declare bankruptcy, have a nervous breakdown, and start drinking again.

Ah, but...

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
