  1. Accidental Ingestion Is Not Cheating!

    June 12, 2013 by betaman

    Oh Happy Day.

    The long-time vegetarian wife has informed me that it doesn’t count if you accidentally ingest a small piece of meat. I suppose it would be hard to call half a hamburger an accident, but I’m happy to know I don’t have to meticulously sort through the baked beans to remove every last morsel of bacon.

    What constitutes an accident? I am proud to say that I am picking out the obvious bacon chunks from the beans served at burger night. But I have to admit, a couple tidbits have made it on to the fork. Oops.

    Just call me the Bean Boy.

    Bring on the Dim Sum! Speaking of which… way back when I fist started this little dietary experiment, that same wife brought home a pork bun for me out of habit when she wanted to surprise me with a Dim Sum treat for lunch. Yes, I picked out the juicy bits and ate the dough! had I only known about this accident rule…

    Dim sum, combo pizza, jambalaya—these are all just accidents waiting to happen.
