A Registered Vegetarian

Rating: 4.3

At the tender age of twelve
my daughter, bless her,
was registered as a vegetarian.
She was duly accredited
with the appropriate documents
and vaccinated with chlorophyll.
Now she is authorized
to eat zucchinis, papayas
and winter cabbages
not to mention
French beans, celeriac
and best of all—
mouth-watering mangold wurzel.

As someone who put my parents through the same thing (and still a registered veggie) I found this hilarious. Hugs Anna xxx

My daughter also registered as a vegetarian about 6 months ago (age 13) . Can make it difficult at meal times. I agree with Marks comments. Great wording.
