Some lemons go their whole lives without finding their purpose.

This one knew; it was meant to roll.

San Diego writer and photographer Mike Sakasegawa happened upon a lemon rolling down the street. His fascination is our good fortune.

Sakasegawa pulled out his phone and began recording.

It's crazy, but we can't stop watching. The little-lemon-that-could defies all odds — overcoming leaves, rain grates, cars. At one point, it looks like a large clump of dried leaves will halt its journey. Not so. That plucky lemon just keeps on rolling.

The post seemed to have fascinated others — it's gotten 83,000 retweets so far.

But that's not the end of the tale. Sakasegawa was so taken by this lemon's gumption that he took it home.

Here's hoping the two live long and happy lives.

Until Sakasegawa gets a hankering for lemonade.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
