For no discernible reason, I pulled into Mickey D's today with an undeniable craving for a Big Mac. I haven't eaten one since I became a vegetarian roughly 17 years ago.


Good to go for another 17 years....


  1. I was having a Filet o Fish moment, and I'm a vegetarian, too! Maybe if I have one it'll hold me over for a decade and a half, too.

  2. The Food Nazi is here to gently remind you that a look at the ingredients of these delectables shows the many sources of excitotoxins. Note how you feel the following day.

  3. I felt TERRIFIC the following day! YUMMMMMMM!

  4. Sandy, I'm compelled to clarify:

    I became a vegetarian 17 years ago. Ethical and environmental concerns set the stage, finding VALVES in the mystery meat in my college cafeteria helped seal the deal.

    Then 10 years after that, at Steak Night at the camp I've taught forever, a switch flipped and I began devouring meat off kids plates, snatching steak off poised forks.... The next day I ate 2 cheeseburgers. I haven't looked back.

    BUT I haven't had a Big Mac.

    Until now....

  5. Flavor enhancers are excitotoxins

  6. of course.

    my response in the natural is "1 every 17 years is a pretty healthy ratio." my response in the supernatural comes from Mark: "17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
