Noises & Babies

mytwistedroots:

People are generally very considerate. Sometimes a little too considerate. When visitors come they gently knock on the door instead of ringing the doorbell. They’ll use quieter voices if they notice the baby nod off.

I’m here to tell you: don’t.

If you come to my house and only knock, don’t…

No, no, no, that’s not how this works!
One of my best friends who lives in LA sent me this and it made me cringe a bit (OK, a lot). An item can’t be “glutenfree-ish” — it’s either gluten-free, or it’s not. Yes, it’s that simple. While a baked good can be made without any gluten-containing ingredients, if it’s prepared alongside or with wheat flour, barley, rye, malt, or spelt, then guess what: It’s NOT gluten-free. Why not just label it as flourless, or write a note about how it doesn’t contain gluten, but is made in a facility that has a shit ton of it lying around?
It may seem like I’m overreacting, but the truth is that cute little labels like this one make celiacs’ lives that much harder. It’s propagating a whole slew of stereotypes and misconceptions about being gluten-free by 1) trivializing the gluten-free label 2) catering to those who want a gluten-free item because it’s a trend, not because it’s a necessity. Newsflash: Unless you’re intolerant and the preparation doesn’t effect you as much, you’re better off eating the real donut. Trust me. It most likely contains a lot less calories, fat, sugar, and I guarantee it will taste better and cost less.
Welp, at least they were being honest.

UGH.

The honesty is good, but would you say “nutfree-ish”?No. No you wouldn’t.
