Had An Interesting Morning...donuts In My Math Class

Recommended Posts

So one of the guys in my class works at a bakery and brought in several boxes of pastries...everyone was saying how good they were...and I said I couldn't eat them. Then everyone wanted to know why. I said I was gluten intolerant, then had to explain. I said, basically whenever I eat any gluten, it inflames my small intestines, then causes them to stop working, and I get really sick for days. Simple explanation, but a couple of people said, "Whoa, I wouldn't even WANT to touch anything w/ gluten if I were you!" and it made me think of all the people who just don't understand how severe this disorder really is. Obviously most of us know this, I just thought if anyone was looking for a better way to get the point across, this could do it :)

Anyway, just thought I'd share! Have a good day everyone!!

Sounds great, Sweetfudge--short and to the point :D

Reminds me of Tuesday when I went to vote. I don't know if it was just me being super sensitive about it, but I swear that everyone in the room was eating some sort of baked good! There were cookies and pastries on every table. The man who asked me to sign the register was eating a donut, and I cringed as I took the pen from off the table. (I didn't have one in my purse).

I made a mental note to keep my hands away from my face until I got home and was able to wash them :P

That is great sweetfudge, good explaining. I usually just go "I will get violently ill" that is enough for anyone.. no more questions have ever been asked.

When I am at a family party and cakes and cookies are there.. or any party for that matter... I just say.. you evil evil gluten eaters! I am not bothered by the glutenous food at all.. I just like to pick on them for eating all that gluten.. I usually get a good laugh from them at that!

Lol! I like to tease my husband about being a glutenivore :) Or if he wants toast, I'll tell him to get his own gluten!
