I am Fussy .. July 4, 2006

Posted by stagedive in Idle Thoughts.

I have been here before .. my mother thinks I am too fussy.

18 years of not eating meat and still, despite blogging about it (I bet she didn’t read it!) there is still a question mark over what a meat eater is and isn’t allowed to eat.

Pizza with the word ‘Pepporoni’ on the front in very large font, is still in the grey area. Once more I retrieved the packaging from the kitchen bin & passed it to mother pointing out the large lettering on the box top. Quizzically she read out loud the ingredients, and with a feeling of deja vu I questioned whether Pork Fat sounded like a vegetable.

“Are you sure? Well you shouldn’t be so fussy” ..

She is right, I shouldn’t. I don’t think it is a debate I am about to conclude either. I love my Mum and all she stands for & I know she loves me too. The kids and Gran ate their tea like the good people that they are. Meanwhile, I was being ‘fussy’..

It was a hungry walk home in the heat of the evening ..

But did you get cheesecake for afters? And was it ‘warmed through’?

I am fussier than you. I’m a vegetarian but I don’t like mushrooms, cooked spinage or avacado (slimy food).
