At Night I Dream About Chicken Wings

Reblogging one of my first blog posts …

Or, β€œThe Confessions of a Reluctant Vegan”

I think I am experiencing a midlife crisis. I know it’s midlife since I just turned 46 and don’t expect to live much past 90. 90 is a respectable age. As I look back over the first half of my life I bear witness to smoking, drinking, fast living and meat … Β lots of meat. Probably if I kept up that lifestyle, my midlife mark would have been at 35.

      And believe me … I’ve contacted the company MANY times!
