My freshman year of college I had a roommate named Jackie. Jackie cared for and loved animals, thus she had given up meat for many years. All of us roommates didn't quite know how to deal with a vegetarian roommate, so of course we teased and made fun, even though we really loved her and her Boca burgers.

Fast forward 4 1/2 years. Karma can be cruel, yet highly comical. Since being pregnant I have not been able to eat meat, smell meat, touch meat, look at get the point. If contact with meat is made, contact with the toilet will be made. What am I supposed to eat?

Dear Jackie, please forgive my lack of understanding. What I should have been doing was consoling you, because meat is delish and you've been so me, I know!
