Lucy Gomez hindi na kumakain ng manok: You don’t eat your playmates

By: - 06/01/2020

HINDI na kumakain ng manok si Lucy Torres-Gomez dahil sa mga alaga nila, partikular na ang isang inaheng manok na pinangalanan nilang Delilah.

Sinimulan niyang ikuwento na merong alagang kambing ang kaniyang kapatid na lagi niyang kasa-kasama, maski tuwing kakain. Dahil daw sa ala-alang ito ay hindi siya kumakain ng karne ng kambing.

“After all, you never eat playmates.” kuwento ni Lucy.

Narealize daw niya na ganito na rin ang nararamdaman niya sa tuwing makikita ang kanilang mga manok na malayang nakakagala sa kanilang bakuran.

“I realize I am starting to feel the same way about chickens. I come down from our room and this Mother Hen is the first thing i see. She is just one of many that roam freely in our backyard. Juliana has named her Delilah. She nests her eggs tenderly, as if they were precious gems., guarding them with her life. Because there is this one wicked chicken who tries to steal her treasures. Solomonic wisdom says we side with Delilah. We check on her daily, and it’s been over 20 days of devotion. Such pure love.”

“That shared I don’t think I can ever eat chicken again. I actually haven’t in almost two months. They are my lockdown friends. We smile at each other daily, they listen to my Spotify playlist while I read and journal. We are family. Sharing photos/videos of Delilah and her babies here. They are lovely.”

Growing up my brother @88matt88 had a pet goat. It was almost a family member, and there were times he would drag the animal inside our house to hopefully stay beside him at the dinner table. I say ‘hopefully’ because Mommy would not hear of it. But because of that memory I could never eat goat meat. Then, now, ever. After all, you never eat playmates. I realize I am starting to feel the same way about chickens. I come down from our room and this Mother Hen is the first thing i see. She is just one of many that roam freely in our backyard.
