"Where do you get ____ from?"
I eat my own toenails.
That wouldn't be vegan though, would it? Human toenails are not of vegetable origin.
I'm new at this, so I tell them I'm trying something new, for my health. They always ask how I like it or how I'm doing with it, and so far, I've lost a bit of weight, (which I had hoped for), and gained a bit of energy, (also hoped for). My main motivation for trying veganism is that my chiropractor told me how harmfull some dairy products are or can be, and I had been consuming over half a gallon of milk a day for over 20 years. I figured , in for a penny, in for a pound. Only one slip up so far, I was doing some work for my old boss on his Model a roadster at his barn, and trying to be supportive, he brought me a salad, but it had chicken, bacon bits, and cheese. I just dug out all the chicken, and pretty much all the cheese and bacon bits and he gave them to the dog. Aside from that, it's going great.
