Often when I'm out getting dinner with a friend, my friends will ask me why I choose meals with no meat in them. "Why'd you get that sandwich? Are you a vegetarian?" My favorite part of this exchange is just after I respond with, "Sort of: I'm a sustainable vegetarian." Confusion makes people give the funniest faces. At about this point I get some question to the effect of, "What the hell is a sustainable vegetarian?"
