when life gives you lemons…

make sure they’re the freaky kind…and that you can shake hands with it. AND then: 1. reminisce of the times you made your little sisters suck on them…oh, the good old days. 2. squeeze them into someone’s cut…and run. 3. squirt some into someone’s eye…and watch their expression. 4. get some salt and pucker up…but wish you were handed the green lemons instead (some call them limes) 5. get some vodka and invite your friends. don’t invite me as i don’t like vodka …and yellow lemons are not that tasty.…

risas y suspiros, fully loaded

sometimes … well… life is funny. one day at elysian parc. the car and this gentleman seemed fully loaded.
