At lunch today Duncan was telling me about a “chinese” show he saw one time on TV:
Duncan: They were eating like bugs and worms, and INSECTS!
Me: Wow. [chews salad]
Duncan: Yeah it was so gross, and I just laughed every time I watched them eat it. They even ATE. BABY. CHICKS.
Duncan: Yeah, babies. And I saw… their brains!
Me: WOW, that’s… different!
Duncan: Yeah, we don’t eat animals.
Me: [quizzical look in his direction] You don’t eat animals?
Duncan: Well, just dead ones.
Me: Not me!
Duncan: Uhm, YEAH. Like chicken, mama.
Me: Nope, I don’t eat meat. Remember?
Duncan: [obviously thinks I have no idea what I’m talking about] Mom, like TURKEY. You eat turkey!
Me: Bud, I don’t eat meat. I don’t eat any animals.
Duncan: [takes another bite of Spaghettios, chews in silence]
Me: [pause] Good ‘sgettios?
Duncan: Not even bears?
