I once heard a man say that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, I didn't have no lemons and I don't like lemonade because I've heard that if too many bubbles go up your nose it can take the top off your head off. Then the rain gets in and makes your brains squishy. I suppose you could wear a hat, but then I think it would be far easier to exercise some self-restraint and not drink all the fizzy bubbles in the first place. Jeez, what are you people like! Actually, I think that the man was telling me a metaphor; what he was trying to say was that you have to make the best of a bad situation, but why he couldn't just say that instead of blathering on about fruit, I will never know.
My bad situation what that I was no longer able to track my sandwich, all because of a dirty duck, but I wasn't going to let that get me down. I sang a little song to myself for a few minutes, just to lift my spirits, then took out my notebook and special pencil and started to draw an artist's impression of my sandwich. I think it was quite a good likeness, even if the crusts were a bit wonky, and it was certainly good enough to show to people when I asked them if they had seen it.
In fact, I was so happy with it that I helped myself to a fruit gum and sang another little song, but I nearly choked during the second verse, so I stopped singing and spat the fruit gum out. Instead, I sat and watched a wriggly worm for a little while, which was an altogether safer pastime.
