Haha. Her veganism was short-lived, I'm afraid. She made it through six days of lettuce and beans and decided to just stop. She didn't miss meat as much as she missed eggs and dairy. In my opinion she's just bad at being a vegan - too little variety and too little protein. If she planned more and got a vegan cookbook or something I'm sure she could keep with it. But that would involve being a vegan which we both agree is lame.

Everything was cooked in bacon or duck fat. The only other items I allowed myself were salt, pepper, coffee and herbs. I would bring these monstrosities into work and gleefully tear into them right in her pompous little face. This may seem petty and childish to you, but she is one of those shame-vegetarians who tries to lay things like global hunger, clear cutting, and habitat destruction at the feet of non-vegetarians. That, and she was convinced I was some sort of moribund heart disease enthusiast. Trust me when I say, she had it coming.
I'm so glad you stuck with this. I thought for a few days that you might be the first s&e casualty.
Turns out the joke was on me. I never admitted it to her, but that was god-friggin awful. I had all the diarrhea of S&E with none of the energy. Not sure what made the difference but I really paid for my little stint. The look on her face when I told her what I was doing though? Once in a lifetime. She started avoiding me at lunch eventually and I stopped because I was so miserable, but her expressions made the whole thing worth it.

I'm a weak man...If I give myself a few feet of leeway, I burst through all of my prohibitions.
