If you have to be addicted to something, then being addicted to Limes is not such a bad deal. Limes are always available, though the price varies according to which week we are in.
Limes at Sav-Mart were six for a dollar today. I bought a dozen. Last week they were a dollar a dozen, so I bought two dozen. I ate that two dozen in about a week. I cut about three a day in half, steel my senses, and eat 'em like oranges. My gawd they sting. But the flavor is wonderful.
Tablemate, Wilma, asked if they "help". So I said, "Well, I sure won't get scurvy."
The British navy has used limes for a couple of hundred years to prevent scurvy. Prior to that, a voyage of over three months could prove fatal to a quarter of the crew. Scuvy, untreated, is fatal. That's how the British sailors, and hence, all Brits, became nick-named Limey.
German naval ships did the same thing with saurkraut, and Germans were nick-named Krauts. I could easily become addicted to saurkraut, too, but Limes are cheaper.
And although Limes were used for centuries to prevent scurvy, it was not until 1932 that anyone knew why. It's the vitamin C, you see.
Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, will tell you more about Limes and Scurvy than you need to know.
