i work with a couple of vegetarians. one lives on cereal, nutri-grain bars and those lil snack packs of 100-calorie things, like goldfish crackers. in months and months of seeing her several days a week, i can't recall ever seeing her eat protein. and she wonders why she is always starving and having to eat every 2 hours.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
