Meat Pusher

Filed under: — Bravus @ 2:21 pm

As you may know, our younger daughter Alex is vegetarian, basically on ethical grounds: she loves animals, so how can she kill and eat them? We support her in that, even if it’s sometimes a hassle to cook separate meals… and it means we probably eat more vegetarian stuff than we otherwise would, which is likely good for us.

Cassie, the older one, just got a job yesterday (she starts this afternoon) at the deli counter at a local Woolworths supermarket. We were joking with her that she’s now a ‘meat pusher’: and not just the relatively benign stuff like grass-fed beef, but the hard stuff – bacon and smoked salmon and pastrami.

PS I may need to revise my earlier thoughts on God not ‘opening doors’ for us: Sue got an interview easily and got the job straight away, and so did Cass.

    I used to be a “meat pusher” with my dad back in the 70’s and 80’s. Only it was more than deli..it was a butcher shop.

    Hope Cassie has fun!!

    PS: So now that something worked out it is God’s doing but when it was not working out it was God not opening doors. At least you have God taking the credit/blame on both sides of the equation 🙂

    Yeppers! I think on the whole that’s fairer than giving him the credit when it goes well and blaming ourselves when it doesn’t, which seems to be what many Christians want us to do…

    To coin a stereotypical Aussie phrase…Good On Ya, Mate!! 😉
