Meat and Veggies

“I’m simply trying to ameliorate all of the damage you’ve done,” Josh said.

“Damage? Don’t you think you’re being a bit dramatic?” Sara said.

“Oh I think I’m being quite judicious, my dear,” Josh said. “Someone has to take steps to clarify what you posted.”

“Oh my God!” Sara said, “You and your snowflake friends need to zen out, for crissake. I’m not taking it back. I meant what I said.”

“Come on, Sara, it wasn’t that bad, was it?” Josh said. “Listen, if they can make hamburgers and hot dogs from veggies, why can’t they make veggies from meat?”

“Josh, I understand that you and your meat-eater pals feel threatened by us vegans,” Sara said, “but why would you go out of your way to give me what looked like carrots that were made out of turkey meat? They were disgusting and I’m going to keep beating that drum on Twitter and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
