      I wouldn't be disturbed by eggs from the backyard, but I admit, yes, I buy
      my meat products from the grocery store. I had a friend when I was a teen
      who raised beef cattle--I'll never forget the day when I asked where one of
      them was, and she pointed to the freezer!

      I have been known to threaten to make parrot stew, though, when he decides
      to take a bath and throw dirty water on me while I vacuum around his cage.
