Just to raise a smile -and I hope of marginally more interest than an account of my breakfast beverage - a friend has just sent this to me

LEMON PICKERS NEEDED IN FLORIDA -- ONLY U.S. CITIZENS OR LEGAL IMMIGRANTS NEED APPLY
Sally Mulligan of Coral Springs, Florida, read an ad in the newspaper for one of the jobs that most Americans are not willing to do., and decided to apply. She submitted to a Florida lemon grove, but seemed far too qualified for the job.
She has a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan and a masterโ€™s degree from Michigan State University. For a number of years, she had worked as a social worker, and also as a school teacher.
The foreman studied her application, frowned and said, "I see you are well-educated, and have an impressive resume. However, I must ask whether you have any actual experience in picking lemons?โ€
"Well, as a matter of fact, I have," she said. "I've been divorced three times, owned two Chryslers, and voted for Trump.โ€
She started work yesterday.
