I seem to be collecting allergies as I get older. This past weekend, I had lunch at the local Corner Bakery and had an allergic reaction that I've never had before (I'll spare the details). It started an hour or so after eating and lasted all day.
Margo called her allergist, and they were really concerned about the reaction. I have an appointment on Friday, but in the mean time they wanted me to get a list of everything I had for lunch that day.
I was expecting it to be difficult to get a complete ingredients list from a restaurant. I was wrong. I asked to talk to the manager and I explained my situation and what I ate. She pulled out a binder, flipped through it, pulling out a few pages, and then went in the back to make copies. She came back and handed me a copy of the pages in the binder that listed all of the ingredients in what I ate that day.
I was surprised and impressed. I wonder how many other places have lists like that.
