Something new: The grapefruit is not a lemon March 26, 2010

Posted by silverlinedletters in funnies, something new every week.

See the resemblance?

This post was supposed to be about how I baked a fluffy warm lemon cake for the first time. It was supposed to be about how it turned out tangy and delicious, like a slice of heaven. NOT.

My first attempt at baking a lemon cake however, turned out to be quite a fiasco that my mother believes will go down in family history. Long story short, I mistook a grapefruit for a large citrus lemon and zealously grated said “lemon” to obtain “lemon rind”. The whole time I was wondering why it was pink inside and I’d brushed it off, believing it must be a genetically modified lemon or a lemon from an exotic, far flung place. So I happily sent the batter for baking and tried the cake fresh out of the oven. Something was a lil off, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. It was only when my discerning mom noted the bitter aftertaste and asked that I showed her the “lemon” I’d used that realisation dawned, big and bright.

And a novice is a novice.

I have a photographic memory when it comes to trivia and other interesting facts that I pick up. I don’t seem to ever forget little snippets of information like that. If only I shared the same zest and enthusiasm for more important stuff that I REALLY ought to remember: like bringing my wallet with me when I visit a petrol station before asking them to top up “full tank” and then making a frantic call back home asking my bro to come rescue me.

Now this cracked me up while I struggled to keep a straight face during Equity & Trusts seminar today.
