This weekend, Lucy heard that her cousin Maggie is a vegetarian. This became a topic of conversation on the drive to gymnastics today.

Lucy: “How did you know Maggie was a vegetarian?”

Me: “She told us.”

Lucy: “So she doesn’t eat bacon or sausage?”

Me: “Nope.”

Lucy: “And she can’t eat sweets?”

Me: “Well, most sweets are not made with meat. She can eat candy and cake.”

[Silence as Lucy contemplates this]

Lucy: “I want to become one …”

Me: “A vegetarian?!?!?!”

Lucy: “No! You didn’t let me finish. I want to become one of the people that doesn’t eat vegetables. Except maybe carrots.”
