This month I’m taking part in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge and will be posting every day except Sundays. My readers voted for the theme “Life, the Universe, and Everything According to My Five-Year-Old”. During bedtime discussions and colouring sessions, my daughter will finally be providing the answers to the philosophical problems and unsolved mysteries that have puzzled humanity’s greatest thinkers for centuries.
Should more people become vegetarian?
Though there are a few vegetarian people in the family, Leona eats meat and fish like her Dad, who is a HUGE meat-eater. She went through a brief phase a year ago where she didn’t want to eat animals, but she couldn’t do without her chicken nuggets and fish fingers.
Me: What do you think a vegetarian is?
L: It means you don’t eat meat.
Me: Who do you know that’s vegetarian?
L: Mummy….Nan and Auntie Min.
Me: That’s right. Why do you think we don’t eat meat?
L: Because you’re crazy! [giggles]. Because you made a promise. You don’t want to make the animals get died.
Me: That’s right. I don’t want animals to suffer. Do you think more people should be vegetarian?
L: Yes, because it’s not nice to kill animals. And it’s healthy.
Me: But you eat meat and fish don’t you?
L: Yes. I just like the taste. The animals had a big life. But I like vegetables as well.
Are you or would you ever consider going vegetarian or vegan? Let me know in the comments!
