When Life Hands You Limes

This morning I put on a lime green turtleneck. Then I went to the gym. When I went into the locker room, a woman with a lime green fleece jacket came out.

I swam, then returned to the locker room. As I left, a woman in a lime green parka came in.

I left the building; ahead of me was a woman with a lime green shoulder bag.

I walked up the street and turned the corner, only to see a man with a lime green knapsack.

I went home for a bit before going out again. One of my neighbors was leaving, just as I was. She, too, had a lime green knapsack.

Another lime green knapsack led the way this afternoon. I followed it awhile before walking downtown. I got to the crosslight, just as a car (lime green, of course) turned.

Then I took the train, which was so crowded, I had no choice but to sit sideways in a seat. I couldn’t help but notice that diagonally across from me was a man with a lime green shamrock on his cap.

I was happy to share the limelight.


I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. As the English folks would say, “Blimey! about Limey. What next–someone with lime green dyed hair? Lime juice in quinine tonic water or ginger ale is delish. Try it_-you may like it. Cheers!
