Our Little Carnivore

Recently at the dinner table, I commented to Paul about the rising cost of meat. "We may need to become vegetarians!" I jokingly mentioned.

"What's a vegetarian?" Max asked.

"A vegetarian is someone who doesn't eat meat," we explained.

"Are vegetarians people?"

"Yes, they're people. They just choose not to eat meat."

Incredulously, he responded, "Do they don't have mouths?"

Our meat loving son could not fathom someone choosing to forgo hamburger, chicken and pork. The only possible explanation was that these people were physically incapable of eating!
