DP Daily Prompts: Not Lemonade
When life gives you lemons— make something else. Tell us about a time you used an object or resolved a tricky situation in an unorthodox way.
I think it’s a good idea, if life gives you lemons do something else. At one time in my life all I used to get was lemons, no matter how hard I tried, I was never appreciated. The only recourse left for me was to erase the word nice from my vocabulary.
At first I wasn’t comfortable changing my personality.
My eldest brother’s wife always complained to my brother about me, my brother of course took her side and never wanted to hear my side of the story. This happened too frequently for my liking, I decided never to visit him, to relieve me from the stress.
One evening he came for a visit and invited me to go to his house, he said his wife had cooked large prawns he’d like me to go for dinner, I refused and told him, he should eat his prawns himself I wasn’t interested. Normally I would never say that, but I thought I was doing the right thing because he stopped being nice to me.
