I hate going to parties: when people find out I’m a vegetarian and/or a professor of religion, people start asking the weirdest questions.
Last night, I got these:
- Is it possible to look forward to eating if you don’t eat meat? (Answer: No, we donate our taste buds to people who eat real food.)
- What do you think of the idea of personal religion? (Answer: To get into that I’d have to give you two or three hour-long lectures on modernism and capitalist ideology. Neither of us want that, do we?)
- Isn’t it cool how God is bigger than religion? You know, it’s the whole universe, right? (Answer: How much have you had to drink?)
