If life gives you lemons, ...

Complete the proverb ‘When life gives you lemons, …’, choosing a, b or c.

a) …, make lemonade.

Well done ! That’s the right answer.

’The proverbial If life gives you lemons, make lemonade’ is used to mean that one should keep an optimistic attitude in the face of adversity. Let’s make the most of what we have.

For many people, the imminent Brexit could very much be considered as a lemon, as it appears to have left a bitter taste in their mouths as they as they look towards an uncertain future. In the face of such uncertainty, better to look on the bright side and try to make something of it, rather than dwell on the past.

French translation

Si la vie vous donne des citrons, faites de la limonade !

...................................................

Examples in context

b) …, make gin and tonic.

Sorry, wrong answer. Sounds like a good plan to start the weekend though.

c) …, throw them at Boris.

Well, however tempting the concept, this is not really how the proverbial saying goes. Sorry, wrong answer. Please try again.
