They saw me and reacted in abject horror. The mother shielded her children (roughly age 18 months and 3) from the horrific site of a baby possibly maybe doing something unnatural like obtaining calories from its mother. Clearly, as demonstrated by the children in question, the proper source of calories for a baby was a hot dog, a soft pretzel, and a chocolate chip cookie the size of its head (they had 4 of each of these items so clearly the 1 year old was intended to consume). The father with plenty of muttered words and dirty looks braved the sleeping/nursing gauntlet to fill 4 gigantic cups with carbonated corn syrup. More foul mutterings in my direction.

    I told him he was a Dr. Phil moment waiting to happen
    That is very very sad. I have been nursing for 7 years, and NIP whenever it seems necessary/appropriate (from baby's perspective, not society's). I have never had a negative comment, even when i was 8 months pregnant, nursing a 2 1/2 yo "baby" (out of the way) in the middle of the grocery store. I'm sorry you've had to deal with that. :\

    I know my husband knows that tortillas are made from flour, not flower. We have used all kinds of flour in our house, i think it was just a blond moment. Maybe we're so used to referring to wheat flour as just flour, that it takes a moment to realize that it's made of wheat.

    Was at a networking event last night. They didn't have anything I could eat except for some strawberries, so I had strawberries and drank tea. A very good friend, over his 3rd beer in an hour and a half, made some comment about "eating that healthy for that long can't be good for you." My husband and our other good friend just stared at him. In my Sweet Southern Belle voice I replied "[Friend], I've lost weight and gotten healthier. Can't say the beer's done either for you."

    Nah, I never use that one. It's always "I love [person] to death>." I damn near said Sweetie instead of his name, though.

    I think that was me. A year ago, that's what I was doing. Then I developed UT problems so bad I ended up peeing blood. Now, I don't drink ANY diet soda. All water, mineral water, tea. It's amazing how we ignore these things, until we can't.

    Yeah I had a headdesk moment there too...
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    A coworker who drinks, smokes, has bad cholesterol, has a much higher BMI (for whatever crap that is worth!) than I and has a few other health problems scored only two points lower than I did...

    All because I eat 0 servings of "healthy whole grains" per day...lol
    Since I knew they weren't going to use the information for any sort of study, when I filled out a similar survey for health insurance, I lied to them. I then called them up to complain about the answer choices (I think I complained about them waaaay back in this thread).

    Probably unrelated, but they removed the health survey requirement about two days later.
