When you have to constantly resist to urge in grocery stores to scream at parents "why are you harming your children!!?" as they pile Kraft Dinner and Oreos into their shopping cart.
When you can finally rehearse, verbatim, the Primal Lifestyle justification without even thinking it through to your non-Primal friends who look at you in disbelief/embarrassment/inquisition after you place your restaurant order (like last Sunday's "please do not put pancake mix into my omelette, thank you very much").
"If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place." Nora Roberts

...when you're hungry and in a rush, and take the entire leg of lamb out of the oven after a whole 20 minutes. Crispy on the outside, bleating in the middle! Some people find the pool of blood surrounding your plate of flesh a bit...odd...though
When you're munching on a chicken thigh at work and a bit of blood squirts out and you look at the co-worker your sitting with saying,"What? Did I do something bad?" and laugh.
When you look at the nopales cactus at the training center and wonder when it blooms and if it's been sprayed.

When a deer hits your car, does a mid-air 360 and runs off and you're thinking, "Why couldn't you have died!! You would have been delicious!!"
This just happened 5 minutes ago.
... when you go through the weekly circular and get ticked off because all the coupons are for processed crap you won't eat!
Sadly, I realized I couldn't coupon years ago for that very reason.
When your 9yo at the grocery store looks over another mom's cart and says, "Wow, her cart is basically the opposite of ours!" (and of course, I shushed him before I got the evil eye from her).
