COME BACK LITTLE LEMON

Just one of those days.

Just one of those crazy days.

city chickens

You know the kind I mean. If something can possibly go wrong it will. 

The toast burns. The printer won't print. You get a huge estimate for car repairs on a car that may not be worth as much as the repairs. Your ninety year old mother calls to tell you she has the stomach flu.

And then there is the lemon. You know the one I am talking about. The organic one. The one you just paid extra for so it will be free of nasty pesticides.

You open the car door to take out the groceries and the bag turns upside down onto the driveway. Out rolls the lemon. Yes, that lemon. The organic, more expensive one. As you watch it roll across the parking lot, you think that maybe, just maybe that lemon isn't so organic anymore. 

SIGH!!!

Some days just aren't quite as simple and serene as you would like.

    1. I never get lemons out either, and I'm thinking I might now need a hazmat suit to handle this one.

  8. Sorry to hear that you had a bad day. I've had days like that too, when everything that could go wrong seems to go wrong. That's when I think I shouldn't have bothered getting out of bed that day!

  9. I'm actually laughing, not because I'm not sympathetic, but because I know exactly the kind of day you mean. My advice: sit on the floor and cry for a minute, then come back up and wash that lemon with Marseilles soap! That's the only thing to do ;)
