Okay, I Won't Be Taking Lemon in My Water

While I may waste money on yarn and books and coffee, I usually like to save money when I order at restaurants by getting just a water with lemon. I like lemons and they add a little "zip" to both my water and iced tea, so I always order it at restaurants.

After seeing this video report from a microbiologist, I think I'll definitely SKIP that lemon from now on, thank you very much. Ughhhhh.

It seems that about 77% of the lemons served in restaurants have various gross kinds of bacteria on them, because the lemons are often sliced on the same cutting board or with the same knives as raw meat. It gets even grosser. But I won't go into details. You can learn about it by going to the link.

So . . . . while I'll still have lemon in my drinks at home, I think I'll take them plain when I order out.

Thank goodness the weekend is coming. And I hear the weather is supposed to be as warm and sunny as a . . . lemon. Sort of.

Have you tried True Lemon or True Lime? It's very handy for traveling and lunchbags.

I'm not surprised. Most men and half of the women don't wash their hands after using the restroom. Makes eating out nauseating, hm?
