    you have this conversation with the waitress at a Kountry Kitchen in rural PA while on a business road trip with a colleague after ordering a salad.
    Me: "Do you have olive oil and red wine vinegar?"
    Her: "Yes"
    Me: "Is it olive oil? I have to have olive oil. If its canola oil or some other kind of oil, It bothers my stomach a lot. Are you sure its olive oil?"
    Her: "Im pretty sure its olive oil. I can check with the cooks in the back. They would know. You want me to check?"
    Me: "Thats ok just give me the red wine vinegar. Does it have sugar in it?"
    Her: "I'll bring you the bottle" She brings me the bottle and sure enough its just regular red wine vinegar, nothing added.
    Her: "By the way, I did check with the cook. He said it is canola oil!"
    She was the sweetest most patient waitress ever!

    They go to a fondue dessert party and dip their fruit in air.

    My fav is still the one about not licking our fingers. That makes me laugh every time.
    Last week I made oatmeal cookies with my daughter for a camp party and she asked if she could lick my fingers since I wasn't going to.

    Thank you for this!
    They have this conversation with the TJ's cashier (and this was yesterday)
    Me: do you have Larabars?
    Cashier: yes, many kinds. Do you want me to hold your place in line while you run over?
    Me: No. Thank you but I can't have them right now.
    Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts
    Me: I know, but I have an unhealthy psychological relationship with them. They feel like dessert.
    Cashier: but they're just fruit and nuts

    Their freezer is full of picked-clean chicken carcasses waiting to be made into bone broth.
    I was going to take a picture of this but actually it's kind of gross. It's like Eraserhead 2 up in there.

    This thread made me laugh so hard!!!!
    ...when you check for sugar free bacon EVERY time you go to the grocery store, even though you were just there 2 days ago and they didn't have any.
    ...when you bring your own kale to a BBQ at a friends house to make kale chips to eat with your lettuce burger.

    they are on farmers market at Saturday morning instead of sleeping
    they are able to buy and carry 20 pounds of organic beef on their own back across whole city
    they spend whole Sunday cooking, preparing and freezing
    they are only people who never touch free sweets at work
    they are angry if they see paleo pancakes labeled as "Whole30 approved" on Pinterest

    They buy four dozen eggs a week. For two people.
    They mutter to themselves while grocery shopping.
    People ask them out to dinner and they say, "I'd rather eat at home."
