Napping is NOT over-rated...

At some point a witty saying will materialize here. Right here. Watch for it.

Summer Mystery

So… I was walking across campus and found a lone lemon, abandoned on a bench. There are so many questions here..


Why did someone have a whole lemon with them?

Why did someone abandon the lemon?

Was the lemon part of a “do it yourself lemonade stand” kit?

Did they expect the squirrels to eat it?

Did they expect the squirrels to cut it up and squeeze it into their tea?

Was it “art?”

Were they lurking there somewhere with a video camera to see how people would react to the sad, abandoned lemon?

Did they expect someone to stare at the lemon in confusion, go into their office to get a camera and then return to take a picture of the lemon in order to query the internet about the presence of said lemon?


If the last was their goal, then achievement unlocked!


I’d love anyone reading this to propose their lemon hypothesis.    Because I’m totally stumped.

  1. Dull but plausible scenario: Someone there likes to drink tea rather than coffee in the morning. They like their tea with fresh lemon. This person had the lemon in a plastic grocery bag which had a hole in it. Lemon fell out in transit. Someone else came upon it on the ground and put it on the bench thinking that the person who lost it would retrace their steps when they found it wasn’t in the bag. ( i have lost and found things in this way). I would have brought lemon wedges cut at home rather than a whole lemon but ….
    Variation on above: There is a still life art class going on and it’s citrus week. Fell out of grocery bag with hole in it as in above scenario

  3. Lynn, I suspect that you are right. When I went back out a couple of hours later, the lemon had vanished.

    A work friend suggested that it would be funny to leave a trail of lemon drops behind the lemon, but we didn’t have any on hand (nor did the vending machines).

  4. The lemon drops would be genius!
