Dave!This morning when I woke up I had an awesome idea for a blog post, but have since forgotten what it was. I can only guess I was going to talk about the perils of not writing things down after you turn 40, but who can say for sure?

Fortunately it's Earth Day today, so there's that to talk about.

Uhhhh... yeah... be kind to the earth... or whatever.

Well that didn't go very far now did it?

Except... Earth Day is also the anniversary of my becoming a vegetarian. I gave up meat on this date back in 1988. Which means it's been 25 years since I've had a hamburger.

A quarter-century since I've had a chicken nugget.

And 9131 days since I've eaten bacon.

No. I don't know how I've survived this long either.

    I could live without chicken nuggets. Maybe even burgers. Maybe.

    But you’d have to pry the bacon from my cold, dead hands. Actually, that’s probably the way I’m gonna go.

    Everybody knows that nuggets are made by genetic engineering. Headless chickens with four legs.

  3. That doesn’t sound like something one should celebrate at all! Especially since the impetus was a chick.

    Almost 1000 days without bacon? I give you props on that. I doubt I could go 1000 hours without bacon.

  5. Colleen says:

    I’m not sure I could go 25 years without a burger with bacon…congratulations and thanks for leaving more of them for me! I hope the pain in your mouth has eased.
