BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Love and Other Hugs

Ah, l’amour … that sweet, agonizing bliss that is unrequited love. Shakespeare called it “Swift as a shadowshort as any dream.” I call it that tiny, violent gremlin that is using my small intestine as a skip rope.

But do not despair! “Hug a Vegetarian” Day is finally here, and it’s the perfect excuse to snuggle up to that someone special (pssst, Ryan Gosling, I’m free today!).

“But, Anna!” you say, tears of joy streaming down your face. “However does one do such a thing?” Oh, my young and bright-eyed Street Teamers—it’s too simple, really:

  • Step three: Accidentally-on-purpose have them overhear you talking about HAVD with your friend (and wingman). Study the art of the hair flip and catch their eye with a flirty smile. Again, do not be creepy.

And just like taking off a bandage, it’s all over. Give yourself a huge pat on the back, and be sure to invite me to the wedding. Otherwise, start laying the groundwork for next year’s HAVD (just … you know … don’t be creepy). As Shakespeare says, “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” Or in my own words, “Outta the way, suckas!”

Happy “Hug a Vegetarian” Day!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
