I hear this one all the time. I dont even have to say anything, I'll just sit there eating my meal, and as soon as someone realizes there is no meat on my plate it starts.
"Oh, are you vegetarian?"
Me: "Yep." *eating food*
"wow, for how long?"
Me: "since july." *eat more food, try and change conversation topic*
"wow, so what do you eat? where do you get your protein?" *shocked face*
Me: "vegetables, pastas, faux meats... everything but dead animal carcass. and I get plenty of protein."
"I could never be vegetarian! I LOVE my meat."
Me: "Ah ok." *keep eating*
I dont understand why people feel the need to tell me this? Or they say how they never eat veggies, only meat... honestly, do you think I, a vegetarian, truly cares that the only thing you can stuff in your gob is rotting carcasses?
I sometimes elaborate and tell them how a yr and half ago I never ate veggies either, I was a meat, cheese, bread type of girl. But people change. A year and a half ago, I wouldnt have eaten as many veggies in a month as I eat now in a few days. I like the transformation.
