Oh, this is so funny! I love it.

OK, I think I'd better find out what disodium phosphate and tartaric acid are. I assume they are *Not* gluten-free? In which case I think I've found a source of contamination because I'm sure I saw disodium phosphate on something I ate this week.

What are they?

"have mastered the art of passing gas in public"

I seriously just almost died laughing, which would not be a good thing because I live alone! my neighbor across the hall is probably wondering what I'm laughing at, but wow, that is just SO TRUE! My cat is looking at me like I have 3 heads, I want to call my mom and tell her that one because we'll be at the mall and I'll say "ut oh, keep walking, walk faster, hurry!" We'll have to detour down aisles in stores so people won't think it was me!!!
