More of the same ship!
There is a saying that when life hands you lemons you make lemonade. Did you know that there is in fact more sugar in lemons than in strawberries? I’m not sure if that’s true but I wouldn’t be that surprised if it is. I read that in a question for one of the trivias we use on one of our ships. I’m never really sure how accurate any of our trivia questions are. The trivias on our work computers have been added to, borrowed from and rewritten by so many people over the years, most of whom don’t even speak English as a first language, that they in themselves are evidence of a big international game of broken telephone. According to another trivia question, there is also supposedly more vitamin C in strawberries than in oranges, but that fun fact doesn’t really contribute to my point in any way. The point is that if there is more sugar in lemons than in strawberries, even though they are sour, the potential for sweetness is there. I’m like, so positive right now. Someone stick that saying on a washed out instagram in hipster font!
I don’t make lemonade though. I don’t know anyone who does. When life hands me lemons I take selfies with them. I really do. Taking selfies or inappropriately happy photos to document bad situations is one of my favourite coping mechanisms. While some of my recent “#makingthemostofabadsituation” pics I wouldn’t actually even share or hashtag, here are some examples of this habit:
