Visceral Vegetarianism

I hate the very smell of shellfish. I am sure I would hate taste too, but I will never know because I just cannot get past that smell. The concept of eating shellfish, because of the the odour, induces abundant stomach churning and heaving. I believe in an abundant life, I just don’t subscribe to that notion when it comes to vomiting.

And here I am, sat in a Red Lobster with my girlfriend, painfully aware of exactly how a vegan or vegetarian feels when faced with the spectre of dining with friends at a steak restaurant.

I have a few friends (a very few friends :) ) who utterly detest the smell and taste of curry but I never really understood it.

“Yes, yes I sympathise, but you have no idea what you are missing you miserable mortal.” would be my thought. I guess from now on I have to be a little more considerate of them. But only a little. ;)
