A New Twist

I'm taking today's post from something my son, Matt, said on his facebook wall the other day. Everyone knows some of the standard cliches and sayings like, "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade". Matt put on his wall, "when life hands you lemons ..."

I was surprised at how many people added their own twist to that saying! Like this:

When life hands you lemons ...

... add sugar.

... throw them back and demand oranges.

... make grape juice and confuse the daylights out of everyone.

It got me to thinking about how creative a lot of my friends are in blog world. So how about it? Let me give you two different sayings, and you leave a comment with your own twist on it. Choose either, or answer both.

It ain't over 'til ...


Been there, done that ...

Or use the lemon one:

When life hands you lemons ...

How would you finish these sayings?


  1. It ain't over - til the Lord takes me home!

    Been there, done that - never want to do it again!

    When life hands you lemons - say "no thank you"

    I'm not very good at this, but at least I tried. lol

  2. It ain't over till your flying high in the sky.

    Been there, done that! Now I need to do it again to get it right.

    When life hands you lemons, make a great sauce for your chicken and then give the rest to your dog and baby. They make the best faces!


  3. I just can't be creative before my coffee kicks in. LOL.

  4. It ain't over...til God says it's over! It ain't over...til the victory is won!

    This is actually a gospel song, one of my favorites!

  5. It ain't over til I've gotten the tee shirt that says Been there done that; squeezed the lemons and made the lemonade to prove it!

  6. It ain't over 'til it's in the scrapbook!

    Been there, done that scrapbooked about it!

    When life hands you lemons, write in invisible ink.

    (You can write in lemon juice but it doesn't show up until you apply heat.)

  7. ......Throw 'em back and say 'I don't want your flippin' lemons'!!

    That's my fave :)

  8. It ain't over til you get voted off the island.

    Been there, done that - the tee shirt doesn't fit.

    When life hands you lemons, say "I'd actually rather have a Coca-Cola."

    --Terrace Crawford

  9. I don't think I am that creative.
    Let's see:
    It ain't over till it's over.
    It ain't over till the fat lady sings.
    Been there, done that, blah, blah, blah.

    Not too creative.
    Oh, well.
    Such is life.


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
