Not for Sushi

After years of being a vegetarian, I once ordered a large platter of sushi that came with octopus. The waitress warned me that the octopus was considered "challenging" to eat. It was. It wasn't the texture that bothered me. It was the idea of eating a creature with such high intelligence and a strong sense of playfulness and curiosity. I couldn't do it. In fact, the very idea of it broke my heart.
