Most Evil Wife Ever
0

13 posts in this topic

So, apparently I am the world's most evil wife. When we go to the movies we always go to the store and pick up two boxes of candy and two sodas. I can't have pretty much anything at the theater, I can't have the popcorn because the butter sauce has soy. I can't have chocolate. Half the candy that isn't chocolate either has wheat in it or has a manufactured in warning. The rest I'd have to go through and carefully decide if it has some random tyramine ingredient I can't have. Honestly, who wants to pay like $600 for a box of candy anyway? They don't sell Mike and Ike at the theater so I don't bother. And I'm not going to buy some bladder buster sized diet Coke with the outside coated in soy butter sauce because teenagers don't understand the concept of hand washing.

Generally we get in just fine, but sometimes they notice I have a purse and enforce their "all bags will be checked" policy. This results in a you can't bring that in statement. Then I have to explain that I have multiple medical conditions and can't eat literally anything they offer. They stare blankly at me and repeat themselves. This is when I'm done messing around and frankly a little mad because I don't want to miss my previews. "I have a medical condition that is protected by the ADA and requires me to eat only certain foods and you don't sell this here or anything I can eat so legally you can't stop me." They here ADA and back off. I don't LIKE doing this but I frankly don't want to spend all night arguing with some flake about candy. And lets be honest... I was bring in candy.

So, we've gone totally healthy recently. And this is how I became the world's most evil wife. We were excited because The Avenger's was finally at the second run theater. So now instead of $15 we could go for $2, yay!!! (Yeah, we're spoiled.) As we're talking about when we're going to go I finally make my pitch to him. We're not taking candy. I'm making some dip, and not sour cream dip, healthy dip and we're taking that and carrots and all natural sodas with us. This covers two bases. First, we aren't eating candy any more so we aren't changing that for a movie. Second, if they decide to enforce their policy and get all funny on us they aren't really going to question a purse with all natural sodas and fresh veggies the way they would candy.

So yup, I made my husband sit through a movie in a theater with fresh veggies and healthy dip and reasonably healthier than usual soda. I'm officially evil. B)

A movie is less than 2 hours. Even a newborn baby can go 2-3 hours without eating. :D

We don't usually eat at a movie. When the kids were little, I brought Tootsie pops. I guess I'm "The Most Evil Mom Ever".

Is your hubby gluten-free also? If not I would just let him eat his chemical packed junk and keep my yummy treats to myself. And I would slap his hand when he reached for any of mine. But of course then you would be the evil wife for not sharing.:D

Due to ongoing GI issues and other health problems for years I accompanied him to a recent appointment with his endocrinologist. When I suggested he may have celiac the doctor was all over it, when the blood tests were negative and I pointed out our insurance won't pay for a biopsy the doctor said he simply needs to be gluten free. So, yes, he is gluten free. Just another instance of how evil I am. :D

And yes, I am aware we technically could go a whole 2-3 hours without eating it's always been tradition to have candy or popcorn for a movie. It's just how it is, movie and a snack. Besides, you get in there and all you can smell is a metric butt ton of popcorn. If I didn't have a munchie I'd probably jump some kid and steal his popcorn or candy.

I totally understand the tradition for snackies at the movies. I use to, when single, wear baggy pants and sneak a ton in. Now that I'm married and was pregnant, I just whipped out the whole jar of peanut butter and a spoon in the theater and started munching and nobody bothered me lol They'd have to strong arm me to take my peanutbutter away :P

Now, for the next 3 years or so, you have the best way to bring snacks in anywhere......THE DIAPER BAG!

Wanting to keep your hubs healthy so he will live a good long life?Gasp! Yes, ADDY, you are a walking b---h. :lol:

I can watch a movie without food, but in the "old days", I'd have have shared a big ole tubfull of that buttered popcorn with the hubs anyway. Not because I particularly even like it, but because it smelled good.

I have been happier with a tootsie pop, K !

I have been known to bring celery to the theater. I just cut it in thick slices and put it in a bag. It's dark. They just see me eating little pieces of something so they would assume it is popcorn.

Actually the big theater here now does have a ton of healthy options. I was really pretty astounded because we hadn't been to the movies in a while. Massively overpriced though. I just can't see the point of going to a theater. My parents love it and they go at least once a week. I don't really like most movies to begin with! So I get really annoyed if I have to sit through a bad one after I have paid enough money to see it that we could have gone out to eat for that price.

I finally broke down and got Netflix for my daughter. I wasn't going to do it. She wanted either that or a Redbox. She has had Redbox twice. And she only got the second one because they gave it to us for free. Redbox to me is a pain. Not as much of a pain as it was in the days when you had to go into like...Blockbuster or one of those places. But still a pain.

My mom was guilt tripping me and said I should at least get her one or the other. I got the Netflix. Best nearly $8 I have spent! Keeps her nice and quite and out of my hair for hours at a time. Heh.

If I ate celery in the theater, I wouldn't be able to hear the movie!

    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
