The Flammable Vegetarian

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Plead the Fifth.”

I have two.

1.) “What made you decide to be a vegetarian?” I became a vegetarian 23 years ago, so it doesn’t matter anymore. I almost don’t remember why I did. And even if I did, I don’t want to answer the other stupid follow up questions.

2.) “You are so white! Don’t you need to get out in the sun?”  No, thank you. I’m flammable. Translation: I had malignant melanoma once and I prefer not to have it again.
