Flashback Friday: Dairy: A Lament

I'd like to share a poem I wrote in July 2009.  It's about the joy and the pain of being a lactose intolerant dairy lover. 

Dairy: A Lament

Dairy, oh dairy, why do you do me this way?
You're creamy and dreamy; I can't stay away.
I just wanna love you, but you're bad for my gut.
So good going down, then a pain in the butt.


  1. Oh no! LOL I couldn't eat dairy when I was breast-feeding my last baby--he was intolerant for a while.
    It was miserable!!! My body just yearned for real ice cream!

  2. I know! Dairy is so yummy! And "they" tell you that cheese and yogurt is okay, but it's a big lie! A dairy conspiracy! :P
