Have you ever given meat to a vegetarian?

Are you a meat enabler?

In my life, I've witnessed two vegetarians cross back to the dark side and scarf down some animal flesh. The first did it for love, knowingly eating turkey tacos in the mistaken belief that eating meat was the key to demonstrating fealty to another person. The second was Saturday night at Willie's, when I saw a vegetarian of a decade eat a bite of meat thinking it was a mushroom.

The former was experimenting in college, so perhaps we'll just call that a phase. The latter, however, was irritated that a friend (other than me) had just watched him take a bite without attempting to intervene. Whether that would have been with a word or a Bodyguard-style dive across his fingers — I do not know. In that situation, I'm thinking the onus is on the vegetarian, even when drinking is involved. Have you ever given a vegetarian meat? [But hopefully not after midnight because then they turn into a gremlin.]
