She then went on to assure us that any and all meat she eats is free range or grass fed. I had my first “I’m one of those vegans moments.”
“They still die in the end.” I responded, causing a look of confusion and concern on her face. “But they live happy lives and that makes me feel better. I like knowing that while they are living, they can graze and spend time in the sun and socialize.” I am paraphrasing but that’s the gist of it.
