Some years ago I had a very strong urge to cook a lemon surprise pudding, a desert made from fresh lemons among other ingredients. It also needs butter. Though quite late at night I went to the kitchen and found that there was no butter, only a type of vegetable fat. My wife said not to try to make the pudding because I didn't have the right ingredients but I decided to continue nonetheless. I started, and got out the electric lemon squeezer. The top bit of it was missing, however, and I spend about half an hour looking for it.
