A Lemon.

What I can see from my first impression of the lemon is that it looks full of juice. There are sparkles where the light reflects off of the juice. It looks tasty from an outward appearance, but I know that traitorous lies dwell inside that lemon. Where one would expect sweet plump fruit is replaced with bitter sour that can contort any face. Its smell in unrelenting, piercing your nose with its tangy scent. The outside is even more bitter than the inside, a taste that would make a season veteran wince. It feels wet, leaves behind a sticky acidic film on your hands that will remain until you wash it off. Its taste is as if your tastes buds themselves are being dissolved by acid.

The first impression of this lemon is bad and does not convey any sympathy for it. The entire Fat Column is ridiculing the lemon remorselessly, and does not attempt to approach from the lemons point of view.Lemon oh lemon, what mysteries do you hold. What hides behind that sour taste. Why must you force others away. What part of people do you hate so dearly. The outside is even more rotten than the inside, a brown color that conveys a disgusting feeling. Is your hatred guided by your age, you show as you grow old and become more rotten. I speak about the mystery behind the lemons age. How the Lemon’s brown color is making it depressed. I spoke of how rotten the lemon had become and how it had grown brown.

You are as old as ever, your rotten browning skin makes people cringe away. Is it your rotten skin that smells so bad, that people can sense the tartness from afar? Why are you so grouchy, old lemon? Is it from seeing your years slip by, never experiencing all that life holds for you? I hope you will forget your malice in you winter years, and soften up.

    I highlighted the descriptive language I used in this paper. I also circle the uses of negative diction to convey feelings of despair and existential crisis in the Lemons life. Finally I linked together the uses of repetition throughout the passage.

    Of all the blog posts about the organic objects, this one had a negative outlook on the object, which is unusual compared to the mostly neutral outlook others had. While other people connected the object to their own experiences or just wrote blankly about what the object looked like, this post ridicules the object. Criticism is something that is rarely seen in these posts, so the change in perspective is appreciated. However, of all the objects, it is strange how one so common and less weirdly shaped in comparison, the lemon, is seen so negatively. As a fruit used commonly in numerous types of foods, many people would assume that those uses outweigh the negatives of its sour taste. However, the rotting of most of the organic objects over time did lead to a less positive description in most of the later entries, and that seems to have already been the case early on with this lemon.

      First of all, thank you for your reply. I noticed how you pointed out how my response to the organic object was negative, and I wanted to elaborate on that. While I myself enjoy lemons every now and then, I think that the majority of people dislike the acidic taste of lemons. I wanted to highlight the societal stigma with lemons. Thank you for noticing.

      Thanks a lot. Give the first impression of this area. A lemon is as rich as a lemon, and from the point of view of a lemon it does not try to be. What was his taste. Are you trying to discredit someone? What do you hate the most? The exterior is better than the interior, the color is red. It raises its anger at some point in time. I’m talking about the mystery behind the lemon years. What a joke with a princess. We talk about the loss of lengonassas and quota types.

      I am very happy that you like my job! If your hatred is important to your age, he hates age. The first part of this poor university is very sympathetic to him. All oil columns are smiling. I’m talking about the mystery of reading age.

    This stood out to me: “It feels wet, leaves behind a sticky acidic film on your hands that will remain until you wash it off. Its taste is as if your tastes buds themselves are being dissolved by acid.” I’ve never noticed this about a lemon. Maybe it’s the slick sheen? I’ll have to check out the sticky, acidic film next time I eat one. Anyway, good description here.

    I found your piece hilarious. Right from the beginning when you said, “but I know that traitorous lies dwell inside that lemon,” I loved how you personified the lemon as if it was actively out to get you. Your use of similes and hyperboles really brought it over the top and made it so enjoyable to read.

    I like how you associate the lemon with being sour which personified it. This stood out to me because it was more of a negative tone to the lemon in general and how lemons are not respected as a fruit which was very creative.
