So I've started reading Eat Pray Love, which I am loving by the way, and in the first part of the book there were many parts that brought a smile to my face. The author is a very witty writer and I have enjoyed these comical bits throughout the book. So far, the one that made me actually laugh out loud when I was walking and reading on my way to work was the following, from Story 20:
So the author is talking about how she loved to try new foods when she was in Rome. And so one day she was with her friend Luca, trying a Roman specialty (intestines of a new-born lamb) and how she comes to a point when she can no longer continue to eat it and so she pushes it aside for a salad. The following is a direct quote from the book:
"You don't like it?" asks Luca, who loves the stuff."I bet Gandhi never ate lamb intestines in his life," I said."He could have.""No, he couldn't have, Luca. Gandhi was a vegetarian.""But vegetarians can eat this," Luca insisted. "Because intestines aren't even meat, Liz. They're just shit."
