Lemonade Freak Out GIF - Lemonade FreakOut Sour GIFs

As a follow up to last week’s post, this week I will give you a few phrases about lemons.

If I am very angry at someone, I might say “Go suck a lemon!”

If someone gives me an answer I don’t like or agree with, I might say “that answer’s a lemon!”

Any product with many problems or breakdowns is called “a lemon”.  Most often used for cars.  That car’s a real lemon!

I also found this Russian idiom that I think works well in English too.  Как выжатый лимон
“Like a squeezed lemon”  This is used when you feel exhausted after working for a long time.  “I feel like a squeezed lemon!”

And finally, the most famous phrase:  “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  This just means make the best out of whatever comes in  life.  This is good advice for all of us.
