So itchy

Hearken back to the days of yore, a young and slightly less angry c1150 had a bit more to be angry about at age 4. He found he had allergies to citric acid and cow's milk, causing eczema. So after a few years of drinking apple juice all the time, and one failed attempt to drink raw goat's milk (don't try it, it's worth your life), it seemed to go away.

Fast forward scene missing years and our angrier c1150 decides to be a bit healthier in his morning routine and drink orange juice. "Ooh, it's yummy," says our hero, "Why didn't I start this before?" Apparently because drinking one glass of orange juice a day for 4 days is enough to trigger another bout of eczema. So I'm itchy and not too happy about this whole thing, the backs of my knees and the insides of my elbows are all rashy and so on. And I still have half a jug of OJ to get through... which will win out? Thriftiness or Itchiness, it'll be quite a battle.
