I’m sour over lemons in my water.

7 Oct

First off, I don’t remember taking this photo. But there must have been an important reason because I only take pictures of food/drinks I plan to blog about later.

So I’m assuming that the lemon was my point of contention. Because I’m not a fan of gratuitous fruit clinging to my glass.

If you’ve read this blog before, you know I love me some fruit. Perhaps I love fruit a bit too much. But I don’t really enjoy the subtle, sour twang of lemon in my water. It’s just not my thing.

Do I like lemons? You bet your ass I do. A few drops of lemon juice give zest to so many things. Fish, butter, ice cream. But when it’s a thoughtlessly chopped hunk of lemon slammed onto a glass for allegedly aesthetic reasons, I’d rather opt out.

Because that lemon gets in the way when I try to drink. And I’ll be damned if I drop that dirty thing into my water. And I’d rather not plump it on the table for the poor waiter to clean up after it’s created a sad, little lemony puddle.

Besides, if I wanted lemon in my water, I’d order lemonade.

Am I making too big a deal out of lemons on my glass? Yes. But if you’re surprised, you obviously haven’t been partaking in Yummy Awesome for long.



Get down from there, lemon!
