Dd will spend hours happily dressing a teddy in fancy clothes at Build-A-Bear and not spend 2 minutes picking out something nice for herself to wear?

How come the more a cure for allergies (or anything else medical) is hyped,
the less likely it is to be anything worth knowing about?

How come everyone I know can rhyme off the newest "treatment" for allergies but they remember that cheese contains milk?

I love it when they don't know butter is dairy.

Or the one I get: "oh so tofu is soy?" :roll:

How come, the narrower my kitchen got (long galley in this house), the more likely guests and husband are to stand directly behind me while I'm trying to chop or cook?
