I Am Not Cool Enough For: Vegetarianism

I'm allergic to a lot of foods.  Namely:

  • Shellfish
  • Mushrooms
  • Avocados 
  • Tree nuts
I can eat a bit of tree nuts without getting too sick, but will break out in a rash or get an itchy mouth if I eat too many.  Tree nuts does not include peanuts, and don't let the peanut people fool you:  more adults are allergic to shellfish than peanuts.

Since many foods that people seem to really enjoy are already off limits to me, I can't imagine willingly give up other foods and because of that, I will never be able to be a vegetarian.  I'm just not cool enough.  Also, I'm just not that in to vegetables.  I mean, they are okay, but are they as good as steak?  No.  As good as shortribs?  No.  As good as bacon?  Okay, nothing is as good as bacon.  Bacon is heaven.  

I ran across this Parks and Recreation clip featuring Ron and food, which, as you know, means meat, and includes one of my favorite Ron moments, where he encounters vegan bacon.  Enjoy!
