“You’re vegan? What do you eat? Can you eat rice?”
I try to imagine a universe where rice isn’t grown, but hunted – the wild rice beast, a dangerous prey…
“Of course I eat rice. It’s a plant.”
“And ketchup? Can you eat ketchup?”
There are a lot of people in the world who have absolutely no idea what being vegetarian or vegan really means. Some people think it means you don’t eat rice or ketchup. Some people think it means you DO eat fish and chicken. And there are people who think you’re a lunatic hell-bent on starving yourself to death.
