Yes...I'm a Vegetarian
I guess the look on my face today must have been transparent as I listened to one of my customers go on about how much he loved bacon, because he paused and said "oh yeah...you're one of those vegetarians aren't you?"
"Why, yes I am."
"You don't eat chicken?"
"You don't eat beef?"
"You don't eat fish?"
"Because it grosses me out and I don't want to eat it."
"So you don't eat ANY meat at all?"
Why do people look at me like I just told them aliens visit me every night? Yes, I'm a vegetarian. No, I'm not a member of PETA, and I won't go on about how awful you are that you eat animals. No, my husband is not a vegetarian and we co-exist just fine. And yes.... yes, I am getting enough B vitamins.
But thank you for worrying so much about my health. Would you like another beer before you go smoke?
