I don't know what I'm eating

Our neighbors are having a cookout with barbecued ribs. This is real barbecue, too, not any pansyass grilled stuff. The neighbor's been slow-cooking it all day. He sent some over to us and even though I'm already full of tacos, I'm scarfing this stuff down like a starving dog.

I am only slightly concerned about what kind of meat I'm eating. I know that the neighbor is on the local police call-list for when someone reports hitting a deer with their car. The neighbor doesn't hunt, but when the police call about a roadkill deer, he goes out to pick it up and eats it.

I'm pretty sure these are pork ribs. Not positive, though. I know it's not beef. But, you know, they taste good so I don't really care.

In writing-related news, I'm 25,000 words into Bloodhound and enjoying writing it immensely. I'm also switching out happily with Adventures in Zoology, which ripened at the same time and is about 2/3 done already. It'd be cool if I could finish both before summer.

I'm the same way. I don't care what the ribs came from, as long as they're barbecued. Mmmmmm.

My friend's neighbour is always bringing her stews of things she found at the side of the road. Rabbit, she thinks. But if the lady doesn't like her, perhaps it's rat.

I'm just glad I'm too in love with veggie to eat animals.:-) On the way to work one day friend and I was a dead dear and my friend phoned her husband to let him know, but someone else was quicker still... So no dear deer for them.

Cate--I don't know if I'd appreciate that, even if the person was a great cook. What if there was road gravel in it?

Jarmara--Until I met our neighbor, I never knew our local police have a list of people who want to know about roadkill deer. It makes sense, though. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with one. :)
