What I ended up with were these concentrated wedges of sugary lime. After crumpling the sections in my hands I was presented with these skin-like membranes that bustled like a taffeta prom dress. I glued the individual parts together in a “Nip/Tuck” fashion and here is the wonderfully bitter result.
