    Default Can you tell me if the following is grammatically correct?

    Making lemonade out lemons that life hands me will not make me feel better; however, squeezing the juice from the lemons in someone's eyes that I don't like and making their life miserable will make me feel better.

    Almost. How about this:

    Making lemonade out of the lemons that life hands me will not make me feel better; however, squeezing the juice from the lemons in someone's eyes that I don't like and making their life miserable will make me feel better.

    You need "out of" here. I might make one other minor change, although the original is not wrong:

    Making lemonade out of the lemons that life hands me will not make me feel better; however, squeezing the juice from the lemons in the eyes of someone that I don't like and making their life miserable will make me feel better.

    I like the way you think.

    Hope this helps.
