Reviews for Dead Animals

‘Why aren’t you wearing any shoes?’ ‘I told you at breakfast, Daddy! I’m vegan now.’ Tim sighed, not wanting to rehash the argument. Leigh had gleefully helped herself to the bacon her sister refused to eat, cereal had been rejected because it involved milk, and a heated battle had erupted over the toast when Kate had discovered the allergy warning on the bread bag identifying possible trace amounts of milk or egg in the product. He’d decided not to challenge her on her sudden decision to become vegan, at least not until he’d had a chance to talk to Palmer about the possible health effects for a growing teenager… and until Abby got back from her conference and could provide back-up!" - While I totally get why Katie or anybody would make such a decision, these paragraphs are just SO funny.

‘Ok, you’re vegan. What does that have to do with why you aren’t wearing shoes?’ ‘I don’t have any shoes to wear.’ ‘What? You have lots…’ ‘All my old shoes are leather, Daddy! I can’t wear dead animals on my feet now!’ Tim closed his eyes and counted silently to ten. He was determined not to let Kate see that he thought she was being ridiculous. He knew lots of committed vegetarians, and he’d always encouraged his children to stand up for things that they thought were important. But why did it have to be so damn inconvenient… when he was already late for work, and Abby was out of town?" - As are these.

‘No animals are going to get any deader if you wear the same shoes you did yesterday. We can go shopping tonight.’ - DeadER, Tim? LOL

"Instead, he hit the speed-dial button to call his wife. ‘Hi! How are…’ ‘Abby, please don’t go to any more conferences! At least, not until the girls are in college!’ - LOL

A vegan. Wow... -pats Tim in sympathy- Was I ever that difficult as a kid?

...Yes. Definitely. :P

I should so try that argument sometime. I don't know when I'd use it and for what, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. I just wish there was some excuse I could use to get an okay to be on the computer all day... :P

Loving this universe!
