Licking envelopes is not Paleo?

Someone in my circle of friends said to me, "What do you do when you need to mail something? Licking envelopes can't be Paleo!" I was stunned - and did not know how to respond. How do you deal with cynical people? It's making me depressed as I realize less and less people support my new lifestyle change.

Use tape or a glue stick.

There's a very tiny chance that wheat was used to make the glue, though mostly it's from corn, sugar, or potato:

I never lick envelopes - I hate the chemicals and the taste. Usually I dampen a paper towel and wipe it across. I totally agree with you though - that is basically what I responded. :)

“I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinion of himself than on the opinion of others.”

-- Marcus Aurelius

“Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him.”

-- Epictetus

These people are just threatened by the notion that their mindlessly accepted way of life might be wrong. They have nothing on their side but the fact that there are a lot of other clueless people living like they do. Need I say more?

Susan, Costanza's soon to be bride, definitely thinks it is not paleo.

There's these special cool things called envelope moisteners. They're basically sponge holders. You wet the sponge, then when you have to, you stick your finger on the sponge making it wet, then run it across the gummed envelope area. Tada. No licking. Isn't techMology great?

The most important thing to remember is that people's opinions are irrelevant as long as you're confident in your decisions...

Just think about this monkey next time you're about to accidentally give a damn:

But also, I'd be careful not to lick too many envelopes.
