I’ve run out of almond milk. It’s night and I’m about to go to bed. At night, I always drink milk because I cannot sleep with an empty stomach, and my tummy rumbles in the middle of the night.
I used to drink dairy milk at night, but since I’ve become vegan I now drink almond milk, and I don’t drink unsweetened almond milk because I like to drink something sweet (sweetened almond milk still contains less sugar than dairy milk). I really don’t like the taste of soy milk by itself, so even though there’s plenty of soy milk in the house, I didn’t want to drink it, so I decided to just put on some jeans, walk out of the house, and go to the local Woolworths to buy some almond milk.
It takes me less than five minutes to drive to my local Woolworths, so it wasn’t a big deal. While there, I saw many people doing late night grocery shopping, and many of them were buying dairy milk, which disappointed me. I hate the dairy industry. I wish I could destroy all dairy farms on earth.
While at the supermarket, I not only purchased two cartons of almond milk but also purchased two boxes of Linda McCartney vegan sausage rolls, which were discounted. I love these sausage rolls! They are super delicious.
While shopping, I kept thinking about veganism. Veganism is always on my mind. I think I’ve become absolutely obsessive about it. I think about it all the time. It’s the only thing that gives me any meaning in life now. I have nothing else to live for. Nothing else matters when there’s a holocaust happening. The scale of animals being killed is so enormous that it eclipses any possible trivial issue I as an individual may have, whether it’s me caring about what other people think of my clothes or my car or whether I should get married or not. Veganism gives you perspective on what really is trivial in your life.
I need to do everything I can, which of course means I should be a good vegan and consume lots of vegan products, from vegan food to vegan clothes. I need to boycott the industries that exploit animals.
But is this enough? What else can I do? Should I do something political? Should I start a vegan business? If something matters so much to me, I want to do it to the extreme. If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing to the extreme.
