Journal Entry

sun 4 sept 2011

I woke up this morning thinking about an incomplete conversation that happened at the day job, weeks ago. *shakes head with a smile* Crazy stuff goes through the head when you are waking up, and falling asleep!

I'm not sure where the topic came from, but we were talking about the amazing variety of food. I was agreeing, but my coworker said to me, "But there are so many things you don't eat!"

"Huh?" I said. I am a bit picky about my vegetables, but this is not common knowledge at work. "What do you mean?" I asked.

"You know," she said. "You don't eat any meat... or cheese." She implied great limitations for my diet.

I laughed out loud! But before I could make my own comment -- which, honestly, they have heard before -- someone else picked up the conversation and it went other places.

My usual comment, after laughing, would have been, "Dead animals are not food!" And neither is cheese.

Ha. I am so used to my vegan-ness that it surprises me when people point out that I am weird!

And the reason that I laughed in the first place: I consider a meat-eating lifestyle to be a more limiting diet.

People don't realize the vastness of vegan cuisine.
