So I almost made an idiot of myself just now!

There are several small shops across the Greenway from where I live, and I’ve been exploring them lately, since they have interesting things at good prices. I went in and found two things I’ve been searching for, buttermilk and yeast, that I hadn’t found in the shops closest to my house. I was also looking for bacon and almost asked the guys behind the butcher counter if they had any.

There was just one problem.

I was in a Halal Market. And to follow Halal, if you don't know, means you can't eat pork.

Thank the God of many religions that I was smart enough to realize the problem with that before I opened my fucking mouth. I would have either greatly offended them or they would have had a good laugh at the expense of the dumb white kid. And I wouldn’t have blamed them for either!

So yeah, thankfully I have enough of a mouth/brain separation or I would have made a serious idiot of myself.
