meat matters… a tale of bacon

K: I’m not gonna eat it anymore mama. We don’t have to call me a vegetarian, but I am not gonna eat anymore meat. I can’t deal with the guilt of all those dead animals. How do they kill them? DO they shoot them or something? I mean that is just so saaaaaddddd.

did i mention she is 5?

CK: Okay, it’s your choice sweetie. Do you need a list of things that are made from animals?

K: No, I know, if it is meat it had to be killed right? Except fish, I’m okay with killing fish.

CK: That will make dinner easier, daddy and I both love fish.

K: And bacon. OH MAMA???? WHY DOES BACON HAVE TO TASTE SO GOOD?

CK: I don’t think I’ve ever known a vegetarian who ate pigs K.

K: I know, but isn’t there a way to get just the bacon without killing the pig, like bacon surgery so the pig could still be happy and I could have its bacon?
