I thought you would get a chuckle out of this anecdote.
My husband and 4-1/2 yr old twins went to our downtown holiday celebration,
during which we usually have dinner at a restaurant. He wanted to try a Texas
barbeque restaurant that just opened up. I said okay. There not too much was
on the menu that I could or wanted to eat. In short, there was only one
thing, a baked potato. Since I have only been a vegan since August, I
contempated eating, you guessed it, meat.
As I thought about whether I really was going to eat the mentioned substance,
the waitress (who complained about how busy it was) told me "we have three
kinds of meat and they're all very tender." (trying hard to get me to make
up my mind.) I don't eat meat, I told her. The look on her face was
priceless, I had all I could do not to giggle.
And yes, you may have guessed it, I had a baked potato with barbeque sauce.
