    Hahahaha. I agree to what Richie said. Make a lemonade for you to have  a lot of Vitamin C in preparation for the next colds, lol. To strenghten your immune system.

    juice half of a lemon into a glass of water and drink every morning when you first get up. My grannie swore this was a natural way to prevent arthritis.

    I've always - personally - felt this was the worst metaphor ever, because, lemons are delicious.  It's like the movie Forrest Gump and the metaphor about a box of chocolates...when has anyone come across a bad tasting bonbon?  Well, to quote Bette Midler in the movie "Drowning Mona" - "what if life gives you ____" I'll leave it to your imagination as to what that last word was.

    Google a recipe for a highly nutritious, calorie-free, lemon drink. Teach your kids to make it and let them sell it on the corner for an exorbitant price. Put the money in their savings account.
