I don’t eat animals, but I’ll sit on them.
I’m a vegetarian, because I happen to believe that a life shouldn’t be taken so that I can eat. This isn’t nearly as controversial today as it’s been in years past, and it’s far easier now to go meat-free than ever.
This comes up in conversation quite often, and I have a canned response to inquiries regarding my beliefs. There’s one recent question, though, that tripped me up.
“Don’t you have leather seats in your Audi?”
Well… *pause* Yes. Yes, I do.
And in my Subaru.
Apparently I won’t eat animals, but I’ll gladly sit on their flesh.
