Barbecued ribs and french fries.
As I finished, I looked at my plate and the pile of bones that were left over.
I thought, “This is as primal as it gets.”
No matter that I used a fork and knife to pull the meat off of the bone, there was no getting around the fact that I was eating the flesh from the ribs of another mammal.
I don’t know why I never made this connection before with ham or chicken. But I think that maybe this is why people take up the vegan lifestyle.
I tried not to think too much about it as I pulled away a hunk of meat from the bone.
It was delicious.
