"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

5 Star Rating

I am at my states Nursing Convention right now, so even though I gave up restaurants for Lent, I sort of have very limited eating choices if I don't eat out while travelling. So, I let my group decide and we picked P.F. Changs. I have never been there before, but I do like Chinese, and so I was pretty excited.

First things first, we sat down and gave our drink orders. Then, before I even glanced at the menu much, the waiter asked if any of us had any food allergies or intolerance's. I was shocked. Never, ever ever have I been asked this before I had to ask myself. It has always been a struggle for me and for the poor people eating with me to get a waiter to talk to the chef about cooking dairy or gluten free. So, after I got over the shock of him asking, I told him I had a dairy intolerance. So he said he would personally go print out a totally separate menu for me that was all dairy free, and that food allergy free dishes were prepared in a totally different area. I was still speechless. So he brought me a new menu and I picked out a dish and It was GOOD and I never got sick....

so, for all my fellow food intolerances out there, lets all support P.F. Changs! Wooooot! One step closer in the right direction.
