As mentioned previously, my family aren't over-enthusiastic about ethical dietary requirements.
Today I finally told my mum - we were discussing a shirt she'd bought for either me or my sister because 'it was too nice to leave in the shop!', and it turned out it was silk so I said I couldn't have it as I'd made the decision not to buy any more animal-based clothing, even second hand. She asked 'so have you gone vegan now as well?' and I said yes. She sighed in a way that implied I'd failed her as a daughter. In response I did the mock exaggerated teen-angst sighing that she used to use on us as children when we protested about having to tidy our rooms or hoover the living room.
They'll come round, right?
