Regular Lemon

Lemon: I spend all my money on these wonderful drinks — lime and celery and lemon and grape — because I'ma very sick girl, and these juices are almost all I can take to sustain this poor little body of mine. Bread and juices, and rolls, of course. (Pause.) I've always had a problem with regular meals — I mean, regular food at regular hours. Maybe it's only a psychological problem, but it's destroyed my body all the same.

Wallace Shawn, Aunt Dan and Lemon, 1985
