Plain & Simple "it Messes Me Up!"

My DD (13) was hanging with her god brother (23) the other day at the mall & he offered to buy her an auntie anne's pretzel ( her favorite!!) & she declined saying she can't eat wheat. "Why? Does it mess you up?" :blink: Exactly! She then admitted to me she didn't know what to say to ppl who offered her glutenous food. Her god brother provided the answer "It messes me up!" That's her new mantra.

We do not have that phrase legally protected so everybody feel free to use it. :rolleyes:;)

I confess I have used this expression --except it had the F-bomb in it as the verb. :lol:

I know, nice potty mouth, IH. :ph34r:

That is adorable!

And perfect for the occasion!

I spent a year giving people the full Celiac Lecture when they asked me why I couldn't have wheat!

I now know that is not necessary and there are times when a shorter version is needed. I will still give the Celiac Lecture if they ask questions about their symptoms etc, but also...

I shall be using your daughter's phrase.

Because indeed, "It messes me up!"

:lol:

Mostly as a verb.....as in..... "It _____s me up."

Like my pal, EATMEAT4GOOD, I often give the Celiac spiel and when I get to the part about the autoimmune response and someone's eyes start glazing over like a Christmas ham, I head for the punch line.
