It was a workday at my "church." A particular guy I always thought of looking sick showed up. Dave is skinny, has a sallow look, there is no joy in his eyes, very low energy, all of the time. (His wife, OTOH, is vibrant, although of poor health, so ????)
I thought to myself, "I'll bet he's a vegetarian or vegan." Sure enough, at lunch time out comes the pasta and broccoli "salad", a fruit cup and then some kind of rice krispie bar. Yum....NOT.
Then two women started talking about veganism, how the Hole Foods CEO is doing such a great job, and oh, did you know that X and family are now vegan? Which might explain THAT husband being a physical and emotional duplicate of the first guy. He's afraid of his own shadow....and his kids!
I asked if they've heard of The Vegetarian Myth... oh yeah, I'm eating my tangy BBQ'd chicken leg....of course not. I summed it up in a sentence or two and they just ignored me.
I thought about poking them in the eye again, so to speak, but decided to not frustrate myself.
