The word ultimatum should really be a curse word. The moment I banish something from my life, it becomes desirable. It doesn't matter that eating gluten makes me feel horrible or that I'm actually allergic to eggs. Forbidden fruit syndrome will rear its ugly head w/o fail any time I say never again.
