Word association is so much fun, don’t you agree?

What do see when you think of buns?

Stop it! We were talking about hamburger buns.

Okay, what do you think of when you hear the word hips?

Nooooooooooooooo, not those silly.

Rosehips of course.

Let’s try another one. Please remember. Our software projects what’s in your mind.

How about thighs?

Noooooooooooooooo, not that one. Get your mind out of the gutter! Please.

We meant fried chicken thighs.

Look, this is about food. Why are you projecting other images into this story?

Okay, since that is the case, we are going to take another approach (sigh). We’ll compromise because of what’s going on in your head.

So, we set this experiment up for you so that when you see a beautiful woman dressed in yellow, any kind of yellow, you will think about lemons and why they are not only good to you, but so good for you as well.

“Drink warm water with lemon first thing in the morning. It’s a good way to detox and alkalize your body.”… Valentina Zelyaeva

At the educational site draxe.com they share, “Lemons are loaded with healthy benefits, and particularly, they’re a great vitamin C food source. One cup of fresh lemon juice provides 187 percent of your daily recommended serving of vitamin C — take that, oranges! Lemon juice also offers up a healthy serving of potassium, magnesium and copper.”

Very good to know. Tangy information. Zesty morsels of enlightenment. Sour in a sweet way.

Sweet just like the following photos of beautiful women adorned in yellow.

For now, these images are fine if you associate them with lemons and good health. That is what you’re doing, right?

Now for this to work you must clear your mind of everything else, including those sexy images you projected before. Ready?

Please relax and listen.

“There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… The Outer Lemons……..”

Or was that the Outer Limits?

Oh yeah, we remember that show.

The Outer Limits (1963-1965) was an American television anthology series, airing on ABC that focused mainly on science fiction themes and often featured a twist ending.
