Upon rereading it, J-- I do see what you are saying.
I thought he sounded negative.
You're right; maybe he is still mourning those foods.
I also thought he suggested a gluten free diet was only for those with a "medical condition" and many people on here can't seem to get any doctor to agree their symptoms ARE a "medical necessity" and so, they remain ill, even after negative testing.
I'll edit my more "grouchy-sounding" comments.
It's not like me to be so irritable. I am probably still pissy about the Domino's fiasco.
I view being gluten-free differently, I think because I was very sick for so long and I welcomed it as an answer. I do not miss any gluteny foods at all.( That's just me, though)
I DO miss the convenience of walking into any eating establishment and ordering off a menu without fear I will suffer drastic consequences.
Thanks for getting me to take another look at it, J.
