I was sitting in the theater waiting for "Miss Potter" to start and the woman in back of me started talking about Tapioca Dextrin.

Luckily, before I turned around and said "Whoa, are you guys Dopers?," it became clear she was just reading the list of ingredients on her movie snax out loud.

Imagine my disappointment.

Imagine their terror as they thought someone was trying to sell them drugs or something. ;)

Nah, didn't actually do it.

This is why we need a verbal "secret handshake," though. Has everyone agreed on "Hi, Opal!" for those times when you think you might have encountered a random Doper IRL?
