Gluten Free Confusion

I’ve been meaning to share my conversation with the person at the counter of a local BBQ restaurant a few months back.

Me: I have celiac disease. Do you have anything without gluten?

Her: <crickets chirping>

Me: Ummm, let’s see. Maybe if I suggest something, you can tell me if it has gluten.

Her: What about macaroni and cheese? Cheese doesn’t have gluten, right?

Me: That’s ok. I’m not hungry.

See, having celiac disease can be so amusing!
