I have been a loyal fan of Grey’s Anatomy since before it even started. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly profiling the show prior to its pilot, I was dying to watch it. I haven’t missed an episode (not that I want that on my headstone or anything). But tonight’s episode really killed it for me. All the air is out of the balloon.
If you didn’t see it, good. I wish I hadn’t. I know, die-hard animal lover can’t handle the truth. Doesn’t like to see animals suffer or in pain. Yup, yup, and yup. I understand that animal testing exists. I understand that meat is murder. Over the past six months or so, I have slowly been moving over to vegetarianism because of my beliefs (wish I could go all the way – vegan that is – but I don’t know that I can make the transition).
Despite my knowledge, I can choose not to watch that kind of thing. Every time The Humane Society or the ASPCA sends a video via email about animal cruelty, or puppy mills, or anything else, I delete it without reading or watching. I can give generously, as I have for decades, without seeing the harsh realities. Being aware is more than plenty for me. I think I will find another way to entertain myself maybe start checking out Must See Thursdays on NBC.
