When I go to other people’s houses for dinner or a party, I expect nothing. I hate the extra attention paid to me and I certainly do not expect anybody to cater to my celiac needs when they have enough on their plate. I’m five years into this disease so while it is still an adjustment, I no longer panic when I go out. It’s just become part of the norm.
So I went to a Halloween party on Saturday (decked out as Batman), looking forward to a night with friends and of course with Batgirl. I just figured I’d drink my drinks, eat some veggies and have some laughs.
But what I got instead was a treat and a half. I had my own gluten-free food station. That’s the picture above. Our gracious hosts completely hooked me up, with food and drink fit for a gluten free king. Again, I don’t expect this kind of treatment. But when it happens, it is oh so sweet.
So a special call out to David and Danielle Zaritsky. You made what already would have been a great night even better.
