OT: margaritas bite back


Recommended Posts

thought that some of you might get a kick out of my pain. Especially those of you who were in the condo with me at ECES. The following happened to me after making scratch margarita mix from about 4 dozen limes for a memorial day party.

if you have a weak stomach, or are about to eat, dont open the following.


these are pictures of my hands taken over the past three days since the party. Needless to say, it has rendered me 100% useless and a gimp. Read the link at the top of the page for a description of the allergy. This is the most violent reaction my local ER has ever seen to lime peels.

Thought you could all use a laugh at my expense.

Hope everyone is having agood summer!

Yikes!!! Todd!!!

Sorry to see your hands. As one of your ECES ’04 roomies who has crushed more that my fair share of limes, I know that lime oil can be strong stuff but I did not believe that it could wreck that kind of havoc. I guess that using rubbers in the kitchen is a good idea after all. I’ve always used the blue nitrile gloves and of course got a lot of feedback and flack about that, but now it’s apparent that it’s a good idea after all.

I hope that you have a speedy recovery and can enjoy the rest of the summer. And next time practice safe squeezing.
