Old Age Ain't for Sissies
Went to a new eye doctor this morning. The one I saw last year was just awful. His technicians did all the work, and he was with me maybe ten minutes or less, and spoke to me almost not at all.
Then the supermarket. I am so uninterested in food; I don't know what I want to eat. Been eating a lot of chicken noodle/chicken with rice soups, and frozen potstickers. Stir fry veggies with brown rice. I'm getting more and more grossed out by meat. I'm completely off beef. Cannot bear how the cows are treated in big factory slaughter houses; they are magnificant animals. I still eat chicken and turkey, almost no pork although I love it. The closer I get to animals the more I cannot bear to eat them. I like the bumper sticker that reads, "If slaughter houses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian." The autistic professor and writer, Temple Grandin, made some inroads into the inhumane slaughter of animals. Still.
