Ken Brings Home Dinner

Tonight was a beautiful fall evening.
Nothing like the stormy weather they had been having.

Ken called Barbie, saying that he was bringing over some take-out, so they could have dinner on the patio.

When Ken got to her house, he proudly showed Barbie the chicken and Jo-Jo potato wedges, looking as pleased as if he'd spent an hour making them himself.

Ken said that he had heard some people say that vegetarians ate chicken, but Barbie informed him that chickens were not vegetables, and the people who ate chicken (or sealife) anyway weren't really vegetarians and they messed it up for everyone who really WAS.

Ken said, yeah, he sorta figured they weren't really a vegetarian food, but it was just SO HARD to remember what was and what wasn't and how could she ever find enough to eat?

Barbie told Ken to relax, it was really easy to be vegetarian, and she did give him credit for thinking about her, and getting dinner anyway.

It was a nice thought, he just needed a little more information about what was vegetarian and what wasn't. Barbie told him they'd go shopping for take-out together next time if he wanted...

So they enjoyed the cool fall sunshine and sat on the back porch and Ken ate his chicken and Barbie ate the potato wedges which were actually pretty good.

I had forgotten about your blog, I am sorry. It is really cute. I love how barbie is trying to teach Ken about being a vegetarian. Good job!

Very funny! It reminds me of the day I told my mom I was vegetarian. Sunday lunch came around and she said, "I know you are vegetarian now but you do still eat beef, don't you?"
