On vegetarianism and going of my "maanam"

On Saturday, Ashwin and I went to woolworths for some groceries while Raghu and Divya stayed home. As we were walking from the veggies section to the milk, Ashwin saw the people buying meat. And this is the monologue that took place:

"Amma, look" he cried at the top of his lungs as usual, "that man is buying fish"
"he is buying fish you know.. FISH"
"that man is buying FISH"
"We don't buy fish, right, we only like fish to swim in the water, right?"
"We don't eat fish, right, because we are vegatables"
, vigourous nod of head to correct himself, "we are vegetarians, right?"
"Only cat eat fish, right?"


While all the while, people were smiling indulgingly at him and my maanam was taking a slow flight through woolworths...

That is his favorite dialogue. Sometimes, with us, he starts off " I like to eat Fish". We should eat Fish".
