Pupa Puppet (serves 1)

1 self-doubting young lady
1 cup of lassitude
1 tin of chopped disillusion

a few days to prepare, then from a couple of months to a life-long to get ready

How to:
Peel the young lady to check that the inside is not rotten yet.
Toss the tin of disillusion in the cup of lassitude then coat the peeled young lady with it
Add a pinch of hope and macerate until a new skin appears, hoping for a better one. Serve on a bed of optimism once ready.

*Tip: In case it turns out to be a bit bitter, spread a spoonful or two of sugar on top to get rid of it
