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?

OMG. Bacon surgery! That is probably the funniest thing I have ever heard.I do hope you have her permission to post her converstations with you.
Maybe, someday, K will grow up and be a famous pig surgeon who does nothing but remove the bacon for the good little boys and girls :)
Gawdamighty. Bacon surgery. That’s priceless. LMAO!
It certainly makes for an interest twist in the brain. I think it’s the one thing my brother [vegetarian] found really hard to resist.Cheers
Aww, how sweet is that! I’m opposed to pig killing too, but I do eat some turkey bacon. Maybe there’s a decent soy alternative?
So cute! Bacon was one of the things I missed at first too.
Bacon surgery! I could benefit from a little of that myself…
That is so damn smart! Why can’t there be bacon removal surgery, huh?
