I've been following the thread on "stupid things omni's say", so I had to relate an incident that happened this morning.



Several of the people in my office suite (which I just moved into) decided to order pizza this morning. Remember that this is a very small, very rural, very...cattle-ranching kinda place.



"Sausage & pepperoni okay for you?" they asked me.



"Actually, I'm a vegetarian."



"Really? I mean, a *real* vegetarian? No fish or anything?"



"Yep."



"Wow - I've never met one before! That's really cool!"



I was very impressed that they knew vegetarians didn't eat fish. Not bad for cattle-country, huh?

Hehe cool!



I remember once, a teacher decided to ask, I forgot why, who was vegetarian in the room. I think it came up as he was rambling about Mad Cow Disease (in a math class, no less!) Some people raised their hands, and he asked if we all ate fish.. Then he classified the ones that didn't as "real vegetarians."



I was the only vegan. heh. There was only one other vegetarian, and one fish-eater.



That's a lot for one classroom!

Once an English teacher did a unit on it. We wathched videos, read articles and had a class debate. Even one of the girls who was strongly against it turned veggie! The teacher was a veggie of course!

Awesome! A lot of our teachers ask us if we're vegetarian. My business teacher asked because it would affect the kind of things we would buy, and one guy who wasn't even veggie raised his hand and said "A lot of people won't buy fur or products tested on animals because they are cruel." Theres four veggie girls (including me) in my math calss and one guy who doesn't eat beef cause its bad for the environment (and he likes to tell other people this stuff as well).

I have a friend whose house I go over to occasionally (yes, just one) and I used to stay for dinner pretty much every time I went there. After I went veg, though, I pretty much avoided eating at people's houses. So one day he calls me up and asks if I can come over and then asks, "uh, can you stay for dinner this time? my dad's dying to have an excuse to make a vegan meal."



so I did, and lo and behold, his dad served up a lovely vegan meal. He even did research before he went shopping to look for "hidden ingredients" just to make sure it was all kosher. er... all vegan.

nope, Catholic. he just likes to experiment and felt he needed an excuse to experiment with something the whole family would have to meet.



He's a good guy. He says I'm like his second daughter. There are actually a bunch of photos of me hanging up with all the pictures of his real kids.



Funny story: We all went out to eat once a long time ago and some older dude started picking on/hitting on me. I'm not good at dealing with that so I was all blushing and sputtering and Joey's dad comes up and yells at him and tells him how stupid he is for hitting on a girl in front of her dad. Now Joey's whole family is Sicilian. They're very dark and very tall. I'm small, blonde, and very fair. This guy looked at me, looked at the family, said, "dude, I wouldn't be so sure she's yours." and walked away.
