I like to think that as a vegan, my life is totally animal-free. But sometimes it just comes down to making the best decision at any given moment.
I will NEVER eat meat (at least not deliberately) but, sometimes I cheat on the other stuff.
Bless me, vegan world for I have sinned. It will soon be zero days since my last confession:
- Leather shoes. This is a biggie for me. I hate ordering shoes (usually work shoes or for hiking) online, so I want to try them on. Most shoes I see have at least a small degree of leather on them, and Portland does not have much for men’s vegan shoes and boots.
- Toothpaste. I just can’t bring myself to using the chamomile-agave-cornstarch hippy toothpastes. So, I grudgingly use Crest. Melanie always claims I am using the one that “gets rubbed in baby bunnies’ eyes.” So that helps.
- Papa John’s Pizza. I am not sure if this is an annual thing or maybe even once every two years (is that bi-annual? I always mess that shit up). But as infrequent as that may be, something inside me just breaks and I need a cheese pizza from these ass clowns once every two years.
What are YOUR vegan sins?
