i was lamenting about how
freaking hard it is to find something,
to eat that doesn't have flour in it,
and also how i was starving
without my daily swiss cake roll,
when a friend of mine heard me.
because i was lamenting out loud,
before i knew it i was begging
on my knees,
"PLEASE tell me i can eat this granola bar,
because it has oat flour, and i am starving!"
and she said,
"no, it may have been cut(?) with the same equipment
they use for wheat, and it could be cross-contaminated."
or something like that, i wasn't really listening after
the word "no" came out of her mouth, i was already
trying to think of something else to eat.
birthday cake, no.
later, when we were all picking up the girls from practice,
she walked in with a bag.
a loaf of rice bread.
and a smile.
"try this," she said.
"with peanut butter."
also in the bag -
i scarfed one of those suckers down in two bites,
hmm, maybe i can do this after all.
