My current state of mind, revealed in text messages:
Little Sister: We have a bunch of lemons. Do you want them for lemonade?
MM: Sure--are these literal lemons or metaphorical lemons?
LS: I will just give you the literal ones and spare you my metaphorical ones. :)
MM: That sounds good. Despite what you may have heard, the metaphorical ones are often too sour to make a potable lemonade.
LS: Definitely! and bitter too.
