A MAN has asked his daughter, who has been a vegetarian since she was 15 and is now 30, if she is “still not eating meat”.
Nikki Hollis was visiting her parents when dad Geoff decided to “just check” if she had reversed the major ethical decision she has stuck to consistently all her life.
Hollis said: “It’s nice that he remembers. Although why exactly he thinks I’ll have given up something I’ve been doing for the last 15 years is anyone’s guess.
“Maybe he thinks I’ve seen a documentary about the many positives of the meat industry. Or I’ve recently had a traumatic incident with a cow and want revenge on the whole species.
“Mind you, mum’s just as bad. She was eating a ham sandwich and asked me if I wanted to ‘try a bit’, as if it might wean me off my terrible habit of vegetarianism.”
Geoff Hollis added: “But chicken’s fine, surely?”
