This is Hannah’s library book.
Awwwww, look at the piggies! They’re sooooooo cuuuuuute!
Back in September, Hannah made the piggie/bacon connection, contemplated the ethical issues as they pertained to her Disney-influenced sensibilities, and ultimately decided that she was okay with the concept of bacon, “because it is delicious.”
So she was prepared for this page:
Me: Yep, they do. And belts and boots and footballs. Those things are made from pigskin.
Hannah: (after a very… long… pause…) WHAT??? That is SO gross! Really? But… pigs are cute!
Me: Hannah, I understand why this upsets you, but how is this different than when you found out that bacon is made from pigs? You were OK with that, I thought.
Hannah: (look of horror begins to shift to look of “Uh oh, if I take up the fight to save the pigs, I’ll have to give up bacon”) Well. I told my sandwich I was sorry.
Epilogue: And since I’m video-post happy, here, by popular demand, is Hannah’s ode to the egg and cheese (with bacon) sandwich.
