    This has happened to me today, I posted in my log, however I feel like sharing in this thread too
    I love liver and all organ meats. I am walking down the aisles of the organic store. I see this pack and get all excited.

    Conversation while paying. Cashier: "Oh your dog is gonna love them!" Me:" I don't have a dog". Akward silence. I stare at the pack. It's a dog treat. Facepalm.

    Dialog with colleague:
    - Nadia, I've made fantastic caramel bars, I'll bring some for you.
    - Thanks Mel, so sweet of you, but save them for your family. I don't eat sweets.
    - But they are homemade! They are good for you!
    - No, thanks Mel, I guess they are just less bad rather than good.
    - I'll show you a recipe, they are perfectly healthy!
    Turned out to be a 3 step thing: put crackers, top with butter/sugar so it forms caramel layer, top with huge layer of chocolate.
    They are so perfectly healthy that I might quit Whole30 and eat them for bf, lunch and dinner

    Haha I think I have zero demand in my area of clubs and bars or banks and well more bars I think I should exchange scobies for bottles. Too bad I can't store them horizontaly. Wine bottle racks with booch. Booch cellars. Booch tasting tours

    Dad has called and said his batch is ready. I said that I told him to test it after 5 days, not bottle it. He said nope, I love it like this. I thought that the vessel is in some powerd spot over there and told him to drink up Mary! Susan! Thank you so much, he has something to be excited about and something to play with during his "home arrest". He was so cute yelling "Nadia, it's ready! The blob has eaten the sugar! It's growing too. Do I bottle first or make new tea? Is it wrong that I like it plain? I want it plain! And yes, Mom said we need to add sugar to it to taste good. I said that she can't have sugar, right?! I mean if she doesn't like it more for me! Anyway, I don't see a baby you were talking about. Maybe we have a male scoby!!!" Shedding a tear.
    Flavors update.
    Cantaloupe. Don't waste kombucha, doesn't translate well at all.
    Cherry. Always good. Cherry vanilla is the bomb. Cherry basil is awesome too.
    Pear. Superstar. Pear vanilla and pear ginger - both are fantastic. Pear strawberry is lame. I am surprised.
    Cranberry - good good.
    Carrot - needs more experimenting. Carrot ginger blew me away.
    Cardamon. Weird but I love cardamon. Will be perfect Christmas drink. What's gonna happen if you heat booch? I assume all the good stuff will be destroyed?

    Friend bought some yogurt covered raisins and offered me some, then said "oh I'm sorry, I forgot, you don't eat dairy".  
    Then followed that with, "I eat them for the calcium from the yogurt."   
     
    Ingredients:  yogurt coating:  sugar, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, nonfat milk powder, yogurt powder (contains nonfat yogurt powder and sodium citrate), color added, lactic acid, lecithin (an emulsifier), and vanillin (an artificial flavor). Raisins:  tapioca dextrin, dextrose, whey powder, powdered sugar, confectioner's glaze. 
     
    Probably more calcium in the raisins alone!

    I was eating breakfast at work (veggies and a compliant chicken sausage) and a co-worker comes in covered in brownies, looks at my plate and says 'A hot dog?  I don't feel so bad about brownies for breakfast now!'
     
    Um... That is not *quite* the same.  Then she proceeds to say that she doesn't like veggies, but mine always smell so good.  She's more of a fruit (or brownies) girl...

    When I was breastfeeding my 6 month old baby my (overweight) Mother-in-Law was living with us and made so many comments on a daily basis:
     
    MIL: Don't you need a lot of protein for breastfeeding?
    Me: Well I eat eggs every breakfast and meat with lunch and dinner
    MIL: Eggs have protein?
     
     
    *hears baby crying/fussing*
    MIL: She is probably allergic to all the veggies you are eating.
     
     
    MIL: Are you sure you're making enough milk? You have no boobs anymore!
    (I am a B cup)
     
     
    Pediatrician: You're not feeding her cereal? She needs it to get her iron!
     
     
    MIL talking about my toddler: Her tooth enamel is going to erode from eating too much fruit.

    - you moisturize your hands with the bit of coconut oil left in the spoon when you're cooking
    - your 9 and 4 year olds ask if stuff at the store is "compliant"
    - said 9 and 4 year olds know what ghee and coconut aminos are
    - the 9 year old spelled out "ghee" to the surprise of his teachers playing boggle at school
    - you can't stop smiling because everything you make tastes GREAT and your non-W30 family is eating it too (willingly)
    - the grocery store cashier gives you that "smile" because you bought 12 cans of tuna (on sale) and she thinks you're a crazy cat lady
    - you start polling your neighbors to see who'll split half a grass fed cow with you to save money on the meat side of your grocery bill
    This thread is great! Thanks for all the laughs. I'm only on Day 12 and am at that sorta bored stage so this definitely helped!
