As the primary definition (not colloquial use) of diet is "food habitually consumed", I say diet. The same way, when I talk about my dog's (or, in the past, my bird's) diet, I'm not referring to a weight loss approach. Same way, when I tell my toddler, "a cow's diet consists primarily of hay" and I'm not referring to putting a cow on a diet. 'Cause I like using terms properly and all. :P

And I hate 'lifestyle' because there is something in that word that implies 'choice' and we have none when it comes to gluten.

Fantastic, Takala! :lol:

Okay everyone.....Try and recall ROBIN LEACH's voiceover....remember that?? Hear him say this:

TONIGHT 's episode ON "LIfestyles of the celiac housewives who dream they can swap their hubs out for cabana boys and nibble on the fingers of KAREN"....we examine the ways we negotiate this "lifestyle" while driving a bus, hopping a train and washing down the contaminated shelves of the grocery aisles while trying not to slap silly the idiots who only THINK they know what a Gluten Free "diet" really means.

No. But Bartfull has cookies. All aboard!!! We're going on a road trip.

My biggest challenge in life :ph34r:

This is my biggest challenge some days also. Or sometimes not slapping people for about 100 other stupid reasons. Mostly I just have the urge to slap people a lot.

Is that why we don't have our muumuus yet? Or did you think we would forget?

" most definitely....Indicative of celiac housewives and the NEW gluten free lifestyle"

inability to take responsibility and blaming others seems to be a symptom of this new" gluten-free lifestyle" and I blame Karen for it....
