NBC's evening news interviewed one of the passengers on the broken-down bus, and he is definitely my favorite passenger from that cruise. He didn't seem upset, as you can see from the photo above, and this is what he said:
"I don't know. Life gives you lemons. I guess you have to eat the lemons sometimes."
C'mon, don't you love him? I think he knew he was saying the expression incorrectly, but it amused him because he's a chemically happy fellow. Fun!
