Ren and I are going to her school’s year-end pool party and BBQ today. Seems pretty ordinary in itself – difference is we are the only vegetarians at a BBQ – first I pondered (very Pinky and the Brain -like) how we would do this without too much stress – no problem I have packed some nectarines, plums, Clive’s home-made curry, roti’s, watermelon, ice-cold water – YUMMMMMMMMM! Life is good. In the past we (for unknown reasons) steered clear of such get-together’s because it just did not seem worth the effort to have to pack separate goodies for us – OK, I admit it – LAZYNESS. Well, today things change – we do live in a meat-munching world (for now) and definitely am not missing out on all the fun things because it is easier to not make the effort to go to a function prepared. New attitude here were go!!! Who knows, we might be able to encourage someone that you can still be vegetarian and have a fun, interesting life!!!
