One day, when I was six years old, I was bragging to my Aunt Rosa that I already knew how to make lemonade. For this, I would grab a glass, fill it with water, add a few tablespoons of sugar, stir it with a teaspoon and that’s it! I was very proud that at such a young age I could already make lemonade. My aunt mentioned something about a lemon, but I didn’t even listen to her, I continued to enjoy my delicious drink. To my little palate, sugar water was the most delicious and anything added to it, including a lemon, could spoil it.

A glass of lemonade

Some years have passed and sometimes I still prepare a lemonade, both at home and at work, especially when I have an urge to drink it to prevent sores in my mouth, or the beginnings of scurvy. But it turns out that at work I only have half an hour for lunch; so to save time, there are times when I just add the lemon juice to a little water and drink it in a hurry.

Squeezing the lemon

I mean, before I used to make lemonade without lemon, and now I make it without sugar. “Cómo cambian los tiempos Venancio” (“How times change Venancio”) is a beautiful song by Los Compadres de Cuba, which I invite you to listen to on YouTube.

  1. Thanks for your publication. I also believe laptop computers are getting to be more and more popular right now, and now are usually the only type of computer utilised in a household. Simply because at the same time they are becoming more and more inexpensive, their processing power keeps growing to the point where there’re as highly effective as desktop computers from just a few years ago.
