    When you have stopped watching the news completely, but you know that fall is coming when you get up to cook breakfast and your coconut oil has turned back into a solid.

    When you consider 6 slices of bacon, sauerkraut, and 3 eggs a healthy breakfast, then see someone eating a bran muffin, low fat yogurt, and a big glass of apple juice and think "He's going to give himself a heart attack!"

    When you are moving and you realize that a stack of moving boxes makes a great stand up desk to put your laptop on to type this post.

    When you get out the gardening tools to clean up the garden and to plant bulbs, and after standing there for a moment decide to take your flip flops off and garden in your bare feet letting the earth squeeze up between your toes.

    Hah! This is my life. I'm excited because our coconut oil is getting softer by the day, hurrah! Spring has sprung!

    Anyway YKYPW... when you decide to go cow pooling, even though you know your freezer is very very tiny and already full of meat. And you've already shotgunned the offal....

    Pam I know exactly what you are talking about. At work lately there have been tons of junk food around. Friday there was a random bag of chips lying around on a table. I saw it but it didn't register with as food. Then a co-worker who fully knows I eat primal, came in a quickly grabbed a hand full of chips. She is on a "diet" i.e. CW, and stated how she has no will power when junk food is left out at work. I just laughed and kept on working.

    When Walmart checkers, ringing up multiple containers of chicken livers, ask you if you're going fishing.

    When another Walmart checker remembers you as "the guy who loves coconut milk."

    When a Target checker asks what you're going to do with all those eggs. "Are you doing a lot of baking?"

    YKYPW....You see a product labeled FAT FREE!! and your first thought is that this is some kind of public service warning label and it takes you a minute to realize that they actually mean this as a selling point.

    Yesterday at work I saw a carton of "Fat Free Half & Half" next to the Krups beverage thing.

    OMG, fake cream for fake coffee!

    I take my own buttered coffee to work...

    You see something in a 'health' store called "Grok" which you jump for joy at the sight of something primal in real life...

    then you look at it closely and its actually Italian Cheese.

    My kids are only semi primal, were working on them slowly. We recently watched a really old Ewoks movie. The little tribe of ewoks took down this big ugly beast. My nearly 9 year old says 'Hey, that thing is huge, they could eat it for months!' So glad to see that he's learning lol (when his little sister said ewww, he said 'what, you could roast it in bacon grease?' ) Smart guy
