Me? Preciousssss...

For dinner this evening, I went to the Loving Hut vegan buffet with five of my friends. When it came time to leave, the lady at the register asked me in very good English if I was a vegan.

Vegetarian, I said.

"How long have you been a vegetarian?"

"Twenty years."

"You are noble and precious," she said.


...and I guess that's where I should end this story; it's a good punchline. But I can't help noticing that as over-the-top and utterly inaccurate those adjectives are for me... it was an hour ago and I'm still glowing.

Just a little. Nobly.
