A Vegetarian was Born

Writing about a FARM was the Flash Fiction Challenge this week from Charli Mills. It brought back a very real childhood memory for me (but I cleaned it up a bit as my reaction to the food on that plate was a bit more dramatic). Join the weekly fun at the Carrot Ranch

A real farm… Peg could hardly believe her luck. She was going to visit a farm as the guest of her aunt and uncle. As an inner-city gal, this was a dream day trip.

There were animals everywhere. Chickens ran free. Cows were being milked. Pigs oinked hello!

Nothing was as enchanting as the lambs. Soft, tufted wool on their backs that gave off a lotion-like grease when petted.

The dinner bell rang, and she joined farmhands at the big table. She nearly fainted when she saw the ham, fried chicken, roast beef, and lamb stew on her plate!
