When life hands you a lemon….

“Hey, don’t pick NesTea in peach flavor… lemon is so much better”.

“Ma, the upma will be so much better with a twist of lemon”.

“This recipe says ‘dash of lemon juice’… why didn’t you add it? Just because it’s optional doesn’t mean it should be ignored”.


“Priya, you didn’t tell me you were making lemon rasam today”. “But it’s not lemon rasam!”.

“Why is this pongal tasting a bit funny?”.

“Why’d you get this facewash?”. (Because it contains lemon as an ingredient).

“God, I thought we’d sworn not to buy this brand of deo anymore”.

“Maami, what to do for travel sickness?… and no, YOU are not giving me suggestions here”. (Go have your Avil and throw up all you like… sucking a lemon half works best, didn’t you know?).


I seem to be in a phase when everything tastes and smells so much better in lemon flavor. And when lemon cures everything from common cold to Stockholm Syndrome.
