My brother is inexplicably allergic to everything ... none of the rest
of us are. No dairy, no onions, no garlic!! He brings his own food.
As we speak I'm kicking myself that I didn't put aside some plain
mashed butternut.

This woman must have gotten a LOT of mileage with her list of
won't-eats. Mememememe! must be her favorite song. So don't
eat, lady, see who cares. I know that sounds mean, but really, if
I had all these issues I would have figured out to find or bring
something I would eat and not make a big deal about it.

I think most people would.
