Writer's Block: Lemon Awareness Month

Posted on 2008.09.09 at 13:13
Current Mood:: quixoticquixotic
This month is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Month. Talk about your experiences with ADHD, or those of someone close to you.

ADHD isn't a real disorder, it's actually a side-effect of looking at lemons. Lemons are sneaky and will inject your mind with citric acids. If you encounter a lemon in the real world try not to look directly at it. Isolate it in a controlled environment and call the Lemonguard, the official fourth emergency service. Trained lemon operatives will be straight around with lemon containment units and lemon neutralising milk of magnesia.

There's a rhyme that my family used to have on an old postcard, which they used to stick to the fridge when I was little... and this reminded me of it. :D
It went something like:

Never trust a melon: it's a lemon in disguise;
Never trust a potato with shifty eyes.
Never trust a radish: it repeats all it hears;
Never trust an onion: it'll all end in tears.

So that's what it is -- if the lemon isn't trying to squirt citric acid into your brain, then it's going around masquerading as a melon!

I've heard that rhyme before, although I can't remember where. Either way it does sound like good advice to live by. :)
