Is that a celiac bracelet?

Thursday morning I sat in a three seat row on MetroNorth and proceeded to type away on my Blackberry.

About halfway into the ride I looked over and noticed the man sitting next to me had a green rubber bracelet. Ever since Lance Armstrong came out with the yellow bracelet there has been a proliferation of rubber bracelets for different causes.

Looked again with my 20/15 laser enhanced vision and saw that he was wearing the Celiac Awareness bracelet.

I asked him if he was celiac, he wasn't. His young son is celiac. We chatted for a while and he had some good restaurant suggestions in Westchester.

What's funny is that my wife always gives me a hard time about wearing the bracelet. I never thought I'd see one on my commute.
