Yesterday, the kind folks in Ben Lomond hosted a "getting to know you" party. This consisted of me and Josh and Joshua going to the community building in ben lomond and sitting in a circle with a bunch of strangers staring at us - awkward to say the least especially given that I hate being the center of attention. Everyone was very nice and there were a few young people there which was encouraging to me.

Instead of gifts, everyone brought a recipe and one ingredient for the recipe. I opened one of the recipes and it happened to be a recipe for red velvet cake with red food coloring being the given ingredient. So after I open it, this woman comes over to me and with a completely straight face says...
"You gotta watch out for that stuff, it'll turn your poop red!"

I didn't know how to respond so I just kind of looked at her and said thanks! Josh and I laughed for like an hour afterwards about it!!
