Me can cook veg!
All the people I have met have been fascinated by the fact that I am good at cooking. (No, really! Believe it!)
But what I find as amusing is that people cannot believe that I have managed to stay 100% vegetarian even after a four year stint abroad. I have had people asking me questions ranging from “Dude! How can you not like meat? (yuck! No, thanks.)” to “I don’t know how you even stay alive without eating meat! Won’t you be malnourished?” (My answer to the second question was “Do I look like a malnourished guy?”. The whole office room laughed at that. For the record, I am about 6ft 2in tall and close to 200 pounds built from pure vegetarian diet).
From the kind of reactions I have seen, I have come to believe with all my heart that some people are afraid of vegetarians… like we have thick bark-like skin, leaves for hair, horns of wood… like the Ents of Tolkein.
Relax, people. We veggies are just as human, if not more, as you non-veggies all are.
