Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Why do some people say, “It’s vegan but it’s good” when serving something I’ve made or brought to share? Does anyone say that about salad, fruit, or other non-animal products when they offer it to guests? “Oh, this water is vegan but it’s thirst-quenching anyway…”


~~ One of my dogs has reached that geriatric stage where he needs carrying up the stairs. That makes me sad, but there’s a big upside to it: I take him in my arms and kiss him while we ascend, just like his brothers and sister who faltered before him. He can do nothing but be smothered in kisses — no wiggling away!

~~ Something about the word “gals” annoys me. I don’t know why, but I guess I’ve never heard a woman say it (that I can recall). It’s always a man I hear saying it dismissively or derisively, as in, “You gals ___.”

~~ Live and learn:  I tried to find out if there was an interesting derivation of gals. Instead, I found that it’s the name of an all-girl school http://www.galschools.org/. Love it!

~~ We were having dinner the other evening and I mistakenly chose a tomato-sauce-laden meal while wearing a white sweatshirt. Of course, I splashed sauce and then bemoaned my foolishness for ruining a favorite shirt. My charming and funny spouse said, quite earnestly, “Maybe it’ll come out. Maybe vegan tomato sauce doesn’t stain.”

It does. So does "vegan" oil.

~~ I’m ignoring the state of the world today. And most of the people who populate it. Don’t get used to my restraint.

Have a great weekend!
