You could also bring your own paper or opaque plastic bag to the store, and have her put the clay in for you to carry home.<quoted text>
@Ann, I do eat my clay in private, its just that he knows I eat it. I told him coz I was tired of always being afraid that when he is around he might open somewhere, where I happen to have hid it and then I would have had to explain akwardly. Even when he is around I put my clay away out of sight.
The lady won't understand why she has to put it in a paper bag, because clay is sold openly in S.A. Also she wouldn't care for the extra paper bag cost. However I will ask her. Infact I wanna ask her where she gets her supply from, maybe I could buy one of those big sacks of clay... That way it would be both discreet and I wouldn't have to go to the market or the lady everytime I have cravings.
Here, it's very common for people to bring their own bags to the grocery store, and I always bring an opaque bag when I have to go get chalk, so I can carry it home without random nosy people staring or asking me if I'm a teacher.
