Beccy Vegetarianism&Song Circles Oil&Vinegar! (132* d) RE: Vegetarianism&Song Circles Oil&Vinegar! 21 Apr 03


Finally, a subject I can sink my teeth into (pardon me...)

I have a sister and her husband who's a vegetarian (heck- they even feed their dog vegetarian dog food and have hypers if my tongs that i turned my steak with touch their portobellos on the grill, ergh) and without sounding too snotty, I'm the better musician by far. My husband, a man who when asked what he wants for dinner answers "I don't care, so long as there's a bunch of meat in it..." is an infinitely better musician than her husband. My theory is that they're weak from hunger. :-) I mean really, how many meals can consist entirely of bean and bean/veggie combos???

But seriously, I love vegetables. My kids love vegetables, my husband loves vegetables. But it just doesn't seem like a complete meal without meat. I was a vegetarian for 7 years. I feel so much better when I eat some meat than when I don't. Maybe it's my metabolism.

I am tired of being told, "I don't eat meat" (read with a snotty tone)"I don't believe in eating meat." How about just, "I don't like meat." That is less of an implication of "Oh you MONSTER. How COULD you possibly lower yourself to eat MEAT? Don't you KNOW that was living and breathing once?" (Ummmm, yeah- and I hope it was recently, 'cause unless I'm dry aging a roast in my fridge- I don't want old meat.)

I'll stop now.

BTW, does anyone have more fun quotes about vegetarianism? My Dad and I collect them and *boy howdy* ya'll gave me some to pass along.
