A-Z Challenge Day 22


Rosey has decided to have another go at becoming a vegetarian. She does it now and again. She once told me that if God meant us to be veggies, he wouldn’t have made cows from beef, but she seems to have conveniently forgotten that for the time being!

She’s dusted off her pots of pills and supplements and lined them up on the shelf where her biscuits and sweets usually live. There are multivitamins, omega 3 tablets, and ashwagandha pills whatever they are!

She pointed to a large unlabeled tin. “I have to take eighteen of those a day – six in the morning, six in the afternoon and six in the evening, they’re essential for increasing my energy levels”

“What are they?” I asked.

“M&M’s,” she said.

I asked if she had plenty of eggs, milk, whole-grain cereals, pulses, green leafy vegetables, fruit and fortified breakfast cereals in stock.

“ I don’t drink milk or eat eggs anymore,” she said.

“So have you turned into a vegan?”  I asked. She thought about it for a minute before adopting her familiar quizzical expression.

“Me, a vegan? Are you saying I’ve got pointed ears like Mr. Spock?”

”Vegans Rosey,” I said, “not Vulcans”!

Rosey, I know you are reading this and you’ll probably tell me off again for teasing you, so in a couple of weeks time I’ll take you out for a big juicy steak by way of an apology.

    Loved this- ‘I have to take eighteen of those a day – six in the morning, six in the afternoon and six in the evening, they’re essential for increasing my energy levels”.
    Cows from beef was hilarious too. And, thanks to Rosey I now know the health benefits of ashwagandha.🙂
    Thanks, as always,for the laugh, Keith and for another delightful glimpse of Rosey’s Life.

    Ha ha ha ha ha. That was full of gems or M&Ms if you prefer – cows made from beef, Ashwagandha, and vegans. Great fun. Btw, I too wrote about vegetarians 🙂

    He-he. Being vegetarian is hard, but very rewarding. You need to know where to get protein, though! Poor Rosey, she should probably stick to eating without labeling everything 🙂

    Vulcans! LOL! Classic.

    Stopping by to say hi! We’re getting closer to the end!

    Hi Keith … I guess Rosey will have forgotten she’s a veggie in a week or so … and all those pills will have been eaten – M&Ms definitely – the others perhaps out to the ducks: poor things … good old Rosey – hope she has some good recipes for us?! Cheers Hilary

      Believe it r not, she’s a pretty good cook, especially with duck which will no doubt be back on the menu before too long!

    I like Rosie’s idea of being a vegetarian. I could never do it, but when you think about it. M&M’s are chocolate and chocolate comes from a bean, so they are appropriate for her diet–just not for vitamins. Delightful story.

      Very true, although vegans have a problem with them because they have milk as an ingredient. I won’t mention that to Rosey though!
