I'll eat them. I always liked sour fruits over sweet fruits.

I would put them in the refrigerator, fully intending to make lemonade, flavor my chicken, perhaps even use some on my salad.

Then months later I would find them in the back of the refrigerator shriveled up, having forgotten them, and toss them out.

That happens to my key limes...somehow they roll out of the bag and end up underneath all the other veggies, never to be seen or heard from again until months later when I clean up the fridge and there is a gross, shriveled up, moldy mess underneath. Yuck.

I'd stuff them in my shirt and run around pretending to rub my boobies.




















Oops, you weren't supposed to know that.

The single best piece of pro-wrestling commentary I ever heard was from the much-under-rated Joey Styles of ECW. Referring to Tommy Dreamer, who was at that time known as "The Innovator of Violence," Styles had this to say:

"Tommy Dreamer, The Innovator of Violence. Give this man lemons, and he will make lemonade...and violence."

That is just really an amazing thing to say and that is my answer, as well.

Lemon juice + seltzer/soda water + simple syrup + 1 shot vodka. Pour ingredients into glass with ice, stir, enjoy.

I would write a business plan for sustainable growth based on adding value to the existing inventory of lemons and selling part of the initial inventory of free lemons to raise capital to establish a continuous lemon supply chain. Once established, we would supply raw lemons as an OEM to middle producers of other lemon-related products under license, generating an IP revenue stream under the contractual stipulation that all products created using lemons purchased from me would have to carry my branding.

Using cash generated from lemon sales and IP revenue generation, I would then establish additional supply chains so that I could create my own lemon products using inexpensive labor in developing markets. I could then phase the revenue stream from my new competitors (i.e. existing customers) to the direct retail market, having already established my lemon product brand under the OEM manufacturing licenses granted to those original customers.

Sound about right?
