The Lady Friend is a vegetarian.
And it is goddamn annoying.
Not the whole only eating plants thing - to be honest that doesn't bother me. Eating well keeps my abs rock hard and makes it a lot easier to go home to the farm and look the cows in the eye. Don't judge me, Bessie, your cousin was delicious.
But what is annoying? EVERY SINGLE PERSON ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS.
If it were 1827 I would understand the confusion. You could call her a witch and throw her off a mountain or try to drown her or whatever they did back then. But it is 2010, even if she WERE a witch she would probably just get her own sitcom and date one of the Jonas brothers.
She is a vegetarian - therefor - she doesn't eat meat. Got it?
Does she eat fish? Let's see; one fish, two fish, red fish, NO FISH!
But I understand the fish confusion - and the questions about eggs and can even stomach people who ask about shellfish.
But once a month, without fail, we will ask a waiter for a vegetarian option and they will say,
"We have a turkey wrap".
Really? You are going to make me explain to you that a turkey is a living animal? Do I need to get out a book of farm animals and make the 'moo' and 'cluck cluck' noises?
Or maybe she'll just have the salad, thanks.
But what a great ad slogan to make turkey relevant beyond Thanksgiving:
Turkey - the other not meat.
