When life hands you lemons

Posted on


Over 20 minutes passed and I couldn’t seem to get it right. I was attempting to balance 3 lemon seeds on top of each other, an acidic, slimy, oddly shaped totem pole and the person sitting across from me whom I was having lunch with sat quietly watching me struggle to get the 3 lemon seeds balanced. He had no idea why I was so determined to balance the 3 lemon seeds and truth is, neither did I. Finally he spoke up, “It’s impossible, it’ll never happen. Sometimes you just have to make do with the cards you’re dealt.” Or something along those lines, I don’t really remember. It went in one ear and out the other. Less than 5 minutes had passed and I had done it. 3 lemon seeds stacked vertically one on top of the other. When life gives you lemons you make a lemon seed tower. I sat beaming with pride and I thought to myself, “Sometimes life knocks you down, over and over, but eventually you get it right”… or something along those lines, I don’t really remember. I was too busy basking in my own glory.
