So I went to a market today to help @squirrel sell their wares at our little booth for the first time since last year. We arefully chipped (both primary and backup dose) 3+ weeks now so finally felt safe enough.

The good: There was a event there and afternoon traffic was brisk but not dangerously crowded, and though "relaxed" even the 40% or so who wend facially alfresco were respectful and responsible. Nice to see people again and slowly getting used to the normalcy.

The bad: It seems the lunch I ordered poisoned me, likely with gluten (I be ridin' the Coeliac Train) though not 100% sure. So I spent the last 2+ hours of the market periodically paying tribute to porcelain with waves of stomach protests.

I did specifically order *gluten free* sauce instead of the regular fermented wheat "soya" sauce and that it isn't just preference it makes me sick but...not sure it was fully appreciated and I think I was given full on wheat sauce. ugh.

The...Interesting...

None other than Jason Kenny, Premier of Alberta (leader of our provincial gov't) dropped by our little booth among others to say hi and offer words of campaign style encouragement!

I'm sure the wave of stomach discomfort that started to set in was the gluten lunch

HONEST!

Anyways it was a shame we were preoccupied with...things and we didn't get a selfie with JK

But at least I maintained composure until he moved on and I could discreetly hit the head post haste

@msh Admirable restraint. We need to keep public discourse civil. (if we want to trash someone, that's what bots are for)
