Sharpies are vegan roomies’ best friends
It’s Round 2 in my search for a vegan or veg roomie to join the wonderful Claudia Tarry of Viva!USA and I in our Cobble Hill apartment. Now, you ask, what was wrong with the folks from Round 1?
Two simply didn’t show up.
One was a weirdo.
One was awesome, but unfortunately doesn’t have a job yet since he’s just moving to NYC (our landlord, understandably, wants someone with a job).
One was looking for a place with “a positive aura” and roomies who have “a zest for life” – I didn’t respond.
A vegan couple moving to NYC sounded cool (they love to bake!) but unfortunately, we’re just looking for one more roomie.
And then there’s a bunch of animal-munchers who apparently are so desperate for a place that they are willing to be veg when in the apartment.
Some of you may say (though perhaps just Bruce Friedrich), “Having a meat-eater move into your apt sounds like a great way to introduce someone to veganism!”
It may be true, but, bleh, no way. I’m not coming home to a dead animal in my fridge. Though surely, living with vegans has its inconveniences, such as not being able to figure which of the several soymilks in the fridge belongs to you – but that’s what Sharpies are for.
