Lifestyle Advice from a Small Pink Bunny Part 5, Lemons. Comic #122

The strange bias in our culture against receiving lemons has always struck me as odd. If life gives you a fragrant source of vitamin C that is an essential ingredient in many Mediterranean cuisines, from a tree that needs an adequate supply of water and can be killed by the frost, add a lot of sugar! I feel like it must be a fairly recent saying that started with cheap industrialized food or a saying that started with the clueless and wealthy. If life gives you a three course banquet, chew thoroughly. If dry cleaning your shirts becomes too expensive, get your wife to do it!

  1. This. Yes, this. Yes. This.

  2. We have a lemon tree in our backyard (well, back-concrete-slab-plus-tree) and when life gives me lemons, I’m pretty excited about it. It means I can make preserved lemons, limoncello, candied lemon peel, OR of course lemonade. =)
