0“Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I don’t like lemons, just the other day a recipe I was following said to put the zest and juice of one in a bowl, and as I gave it a squeeze it squirted me in the eye, lemons really give me the pip!

Speaking of lemons, there’s a pub near me called the Lemon Tree, it’s got a beautiful orangery at the rear, the perfect place to sit and sip a gin and lime! 

I overheard someone attempting a lemony joke the other day, it went like this; if a lemon played an instrument, what would it be? 

I’ll let you work out what the answer is!

I always think a slice of lemon in a glass looks quite a-peeling although you have to be careful not to accidentally swallow it like a mate of mine once did, we had to get him lemon aid.

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve been a sweet audience, and in case you didn’t guess, it was a lemon-cello, good…night!”



Thanks to Denise at GirlieOnTheEdge for hosting.

    Love the standup style of this piece. My favourite bit was “we had to get him lemon aid.”
