Where’s a good Tardis when you need one?
I think Duffy already took care of that. I’m sure it’s finely shredded now.
If you want somewhere warm and sane, try El Paso, TX. We do have jobs here and the cost of living is low.
I don’t know about the protein part of gluten, but I avoid it because most gluten comes from wheat and I’m allergic to grasses, which includes wheat. I can eat oatmeal, which has gluten, because it’s not so closely related to grass. Unlike wheat, I can eat it and not start wheezing. Those of us who avoid wheat have found there are some very fine gluten-free bread substitutes. I’ve had to hunt for them, but they’re very similar to the wheat based ones in taste. I’ll admit to missing wheat bread, heck, my Grandma taught me how to make bread from scratch and I used to make it for my dad all the time. He adored fresh, homemade bread. There’s nothing better than fresh bread slathered in butter. A whole meal all by itself. The gluten free ones I make in my bread machine are the closest I can get now (no kneading, though, it’s too wet.) But once it’s done a fresh hot slice with goat’s milk butter and I’m in heaven. (Yeah, cow products are off limits for me, too. Can’t digest them, meat or milk products. One accidental slip-up and I’m in agony for hours. I’ve learned to compensate with nondairy plant-based products and any meat except cow. We live in a wonderful time when so many substitutes exist. There’s even Daiya cheesecakes! Not cheap, but if you cut it into 8 pieces you can stretch it out for 8 days.) Yeah, rambled a bit, but not everyone is on a restricted diet because it’s the latest fad. Sometimes fads help out people like me. Until they fade and so do the goodies. I’m going to enjoy them while I can.
I love the look on Duffy’s face when his inner lion emerges. That is fantastic!
Good thing basic lion instinct kicked in or the poor kid would be overboard.
Yeah, it’s definitely sushi now. Finely sliced and diced sea creature. Snake, eel or fish it’s shredded.
Well, finally! Duffy let his inner lion out! Wondered when the cub would remember he is a lion and not a human.
From the little Koala’s story before she became a koala, the Topsiders never leave their suits. Everything they see is computer simulated so everything they ‘see, hear and feel’ is a simulated virtual reality. To them they are not in suits, but walking around as themselves sans suits. Whatever they eat is probably a smoothie of synthetic proteins, minerals and vitamins injected into sealed pockets in the suit that they ‘eat’ by sucking it up through a tube. Water, too. Their waste materials are probably dumped into other pockets and flushed out. No need to open the suit, only the pocket needs to be opened to the outside.
It would have helped if some of the Topsiders hadn’t spent so much time torturing and killing those people who stayed human and didn’t transform. They decided they were ‘Typhoid Marys’ and expendable. No doubt a lot of valuable information just wasn’t learned.
