Horse meat… are you there?

With slow revelation(although hopefully slowing right down) of horsemeat found in food products lately… i wonder if businesses that sell food with beef as a main/partial ingredient have been affected or have noticed a drop in sales..?

I’m curious because although i’m not overly concerned about having accidentally eaten horsemeat, i have to admit that whenever i open up a meal such as frozen pizza with what is supposed to be minced beef on it, the question “is this really beef?” does drift across my mind.

If even 1 person such as myself have such thoughts, what about many others.. are people perhaps consciously or subsconciously avoiding beef/meat meals/products unless they definitely know its origin lately… ?
Are restaurants bearing the brunt and seeing a fall in say orders of steak dishes, pies, beef casseroles, pasties etc… ?


no endings..

i’ve had a lot of short stories in my life but they’ve mostly not had an ending. Unfortunately, there are a lot of loose ends to tie.. but now i feel it’s too late to tie them up individually..  so i try to make sure that i don’t have anymore loose ends as i get older.. constantly reminding myself..  all the hurt and confusion i’d caused, borne out of my own personal fear… selfish.
