the truth

For my vegetarian husband, who I think will appreciate this, a little bit from the book everyone is reading, and I am currently in love with, Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

“I did well with them until I started trying to think how I would describe this dish, and I thought, It doesn’t look like intestines. It actually looks like tapeworms. Then I pushed it aside and asked for a salad.

“You don’t like it?” asked Luca, who loves the stuff.

“I bet Gandhi never ate lamb intestines in his life,” I said.

“He could have.”

“No, he couldn’t have, Luca. Gandhi was a vegetarian.”

“But vegetarians can eat this,” Luca insisted. “Because intestines aren’t even meat, Liz. They’re just shit.”

He he 🙂
