i was talking to my 72-year-old great-uncle today about how i read this book and have since become vegan.
him: what’s veegaaon?
me: Basically i don’t eat meat. or eggs. or butter. or chesse. or anything from an animal. in other words, everything i eat comes from a plant
him: that sounds hard
me: well not really. also, I’ve actually been a vegetarian for about six years, so i had already given up meat.
him: if that’s true, how come you have so much weight on you?
me: (crying on the inside). well, umm, I guess im trying to lose it.
I supposse when I’m 72 i won’t care about tact any more either.
UPDATE: just so you know, I have lost about 12 pounds since becoming vegan. if you were wondering.
