My department at work is having a luncheon this Friday. The whole department, so it will be weird to opt out. BUT, it's a a rib joint, of all places. I was just out sick for an entire week, so calling in sick isn't an option. They do have grilled veggies (which I'll have to ask for sans oil), but I just don't know how I can sit in a place like that. It's one thing to go to a "regular" restaurant, but a restaurant whose entire theme is built around eating dead animals - ugh. I don't know what to do.... if I could somehow be on Mars that day I would.
