Life is Like a Vegetable Egg Roll, Sometimes it Contains Pork

Howdy! If you're a regular reader, you'll notice I totally scummed you on WIP Wednesday. Sorry about that, I had a family emergency crop up on Monday. You probably won't get a Free Fiction Friday this week either, so be prepared. I'm hoping to maybe have posts for next week, but you never know what life will throw your way, am I right?

In lieu of actual content, I'd like to pose a question to you. If, like me, you were a vegetarian (eggs and dairy allowed) and saw a vegetable egg roll on the menu of a hospital cafeteria, would you expect it to have pork in it?

I'd like to say I'm "asking for a friend" but it was me. I trusted it to be just vegetables and took a bite because egg roll goodness and swallowed it. The taste let me know that there was some surprise ingredient and when I dissected the remaining egg roll, it realized it should really have been listed as a pork egg roll. My guts weren't pleased, I can tell you that. 

All in all, it was a very good experience with the hospital but I'm going to have to ding them on this when they send us a survey. (and you know they will)

I'll say TTFN and hope for fewer surprises in both life and in egg rolls.
