Happy Veggie Kids: Madison! »
The above person is Madison with her adopted dog Larry! Madison is 12 and she’s a scrappy basketball player from Roseville, Calif. From her Auntie: “Her uncle Rod and I are vegans but we were completely, though pleasantly, surprised by her proud announcement that she is a vegetarian. She’s psyched about the Daiya grilled cheeses we’ve promised to make her.” Awesome! Daiya grilled cheese with tomato soup, holy cannoli! The best! Also the best? Indoctrinating your siblings’ children!
Vegansaurus: What is your favorite food?
Madison: Cheese. [Ed. note: We’ll get her eventually! I know it]
What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
Why are you vegetarian?
Because I love animals and the thought of meat grosses me out.
Do you like being vegetarian? Why?
Yes! Because I don’t like the thought of eating animals so when I don’t eat animals, I feel good!
Is it ever hard to be vegetarian?
What do your friends think about you being vegetarian?
Some of my friends are vegetarians, but the ones who aren’t don’t really care.
What is your favorite animal? Why?
Dogs! Because they are really sweet and cuddly and soft and nice!
Do you like pink dinosaurs?
Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Madison: Umm, no. Wait, was that a real question?
Aunt: Yes. Their logo is a pink dinosaur.
Madison: Oh! OK, I’ll do it! I’ll find one on the internet and copy it
Madison was moving and couldn’t draw a vegansaurus for us so her uncle Rod was kind enough to draw one on her behalf:
Rod should be a professional vegansaurus drawer! As usual, if you have a vegan or vegetarian kid who wants to do the interview, email me!
