Joe - Do you find it difficult? Does it take a lot of restraint?
Joe - But…for the rest of your life?
Other - Well, I don't see me *not* being any time in the future. I've never really had the urge, the timing has never been right - I've never salivated over a piece of meat, so to speak.
Joe - That. That isn't really what it's about, man, hah. It's more about enjoying the moment, letting go - forgetting the world. Indulging.
Other - I've tried that but I just feel guilty.
Joe - Why? Pleasure is nothing to feel guilty about.
Other - But it's at the expense of another living creature...
Joe - They can enjoy it to, y'know!
Other - How?!
Joe - Talk to them, see what they want, communicate.
Other - You ask it what it wants before you eat it?
Joe - Uhhh…kind of personal, don't you think?
Other - Whether or not you talk to your food is 'personal'?
Joe - Your food? Wait, what?
Other - Yes, your food. What the fuck do you think I'm talking about?
Joe - I thought you said you were a lifelong virgin? Other - Vegan, dude. I said 'vegan'.
