Once again, I was surrounded by half-assed herbivores, resulting in a spread comprised mostly of plants.
God, how I despise these people, now openly and with hostility.
Curious that I’m dealing with such an issue in meat-heavy Manila, though I never encountered it in all the time that I lived in the States (certainly not in Korea, where people can be heard to declare – and I swear this to be true – “I’m a vegetarian (채식주의자), and my favorite food is chicken.”). Then again, maybe it’s because they know that vegetable dishes here are hard to come by, so they’re on the defensive. Well, heads up, I’m now on the offensive.
Prawns, ordered at my insistence, were the only animals on the table.
