OKAY, so it was yet another day of raw vegan talk amongst the students...
My school hasn't issued us lockers yet, so we are carrying everything around. For me, that means I am carrying around my lunch.
Today I wanted something simple and easy, so I brought 6 large ripe bananas.
I carried them in a plastic produce bag - so it was see-through.
Many people were giving me weird looks throughout the day for carrying around a bunch of bananas, and a few people asked for one, but i had to tell them it was my lunch and they all walked away confused.
But this brings me to English class...
My bananas were placed gently next to my bag. This [loud] girl sat next to me and looks at the bananas. Then she looks at me. Then she looks at the bananas.
"ARE THOSE YOUR BANANAS?!?!?!?!"
"ALL OF THOSE BANANAS ARE FOR YOUUUUUUU!!!?!?!?!"
"YOU CAN EAT ALL OF THOSE BY YOURSELF????!!!!?!?!?!"
"HOW CAN YOU EAT ALL OF THOSE!??????!!?!?!?"
---------here it goes again-------------
"I'm a raw vegan."
again, the whole class stops and turns towards me.
and of course, I had some 'splainin to do.
Basically, you know how it goes, I told them and they asked questions, and OMG i totally OWNED them... Seriously, they would try to say something about "BUt where do you get your protein?" or "where do you get calcium" and dudes, i NAILED IT. I explained everything so well. They all realized I was pretty DAMN educated and i felt like they really respected me.
just had to share... ha ha.
