    I would be very sad if it were the onions. Guess I would just resign myself to feeling gassy, because I LOVE onions.

    Looking good.

    I was perusing the forum this morning, and happened on a post by someone who was experimenting with going shampoo-less, and freaking out at the condition of her hair.

    This is not to get on the case of people who are freaking out about their looks. I freak out plenty my ownself over various things. But it got me thinking.

    Have we so conquered nature, genetics, our own human-ness that we NEED to look good all the time? Either to ourselves or others?

    There is an unspoken agreement for most jobs, and even just being out in public, that we look presentable. Clean, and groomed to various degrees.

    But what if we don't conform to the narrow idea of what that looks like. If your hair freaks out over baking soda, how does that change our situation? Will we lose a job because of a bad hair week? Will others think less of us?

    Sadly, the answers might be 'yes'. Man is still a status pack animal, even in a modern democracy. And looks make up a good component of out status. People treat us certain ways, we even treat ourselves certain ways, based on how we look.

    Will the subliminal thought be, how can she control the accounts, if she can't even control her hair?

    Even a turban for the transition time, might be thought of as too strange. People might start thinking of you as 'that weirdo'. And (most) men can't even attempt the turban without extremer reactions.

    Remember the flurry of news stories a few years back, about people shaving their heads in emotional solidarity with loved ones undergoing chemo? Bald became chic and acceptable, but only because of the underlying REASON.

    Is our reason of wanting to be more primal regarding the amount of chemicals we put on our bodies acceptable to society at large? I think not. And face it, we still would have to provide the reason, for even a minimum of acceptance.

    Don't worry too much. I still eat onions every now and then, but not too much. I used to sautee them into everything and then had GERD. That sent me down this weird path with HCl supplements that may/may not have been worth it. In the end I realized too much gas in itself can cause GERD and when I stopped putting onions into so many things my digestion got a lot better.

    Interesting point Sabine. That'll give me something to think about on the hike.

    Alessandra- thanks for looking at my journal and commenting. I'm always surprised by how many Texans there are on the forum. Don't know why, as it is a huge state. I guess since I never meet any folk who are interested in primal living here in the suburbs, I assume they are thin on the ground in general. Enjoy your hike!
    PrimalCajun- if the thoughts are deep, it must be because they came to me in the tub. One thing I am really enjoying about the journal, is the chance to think out loud about topics i probably should have thought about long ago. I like looking good, but it has never been high enough on my priority list to put a lot of effort into. I am amazed at people who look pulled together ALL the time. About the best I can hope for is to be clean and color co-ordinated(mostly- I see no reason why orange and pink can't co-exist!).

    Been reading Sabine's great journal and noticed this. Yep. Onions make me gassy too! I figure most everyone on here is from Texas and that you and ecks and I are holding up the edges! Wait. longing2bfit is from Northern California, isn't she?

    Ahh, but I'm not a native Texan. I can never claim that. My kid does, but I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Man do I miss that place on hot days like today! Where's the ocean when I need a good swim Hey, you'd think with the amount of beef around here, people would jump right on this boat.

    Sabine --

    Rolling in laughter of some of the journal threads here. The body parts' stuff is pretty fun! Glad some of you are checking into Old Fat Guy's journal. If you haven't, it's worth it. He's got a good head on his shoulders and a helluva sense of humor! And he loves goooood food!
