Sometimes, it’s the little things that make life worth living. A nice cup of coffee on a quiet Sunday morning, for example. Or the feeling of crawling into a bed with freshly laundered sheets. Or sometimes, it’s watching a lemon rolling down the street.
That’s what happened to San Diego-based writer and photographer Mike Sakasegawa, who witnessed an errant lemon rolling down the street while walking home from a run. He writes on Twitter that he followed it for about a quarter of a mile, documenting nearly two minutes of its journey on video before it came to an eventual stop. (Sorry, spoiler alert!)
Today as I was walking home after my run I saw a large lemon rolling down the hill. It kept rolling for about a quarter mile. And now you can see it, too. pic.twitter.com/dQoHi4RrXS

In the less than 24 hours since the video was posted to Twitter, its been viewed over 1.3 million times (at the time of this writing) with over 18,000 retweets 63,000 likes. For some odd reason, people find footage of a lemon slowly rolling down a hill super mesmerizing.

This is like the lowest possible stakes version of the video where the snakes chase the lizard and I got weirdly invested in it. https://t.co/xqge4Zndca
