1. My cat cries less at night (perhaps in silent solidarity, but I doubt it. He's still eating meat).
2. My Twitter following has grown by ten percent (though I am not meeting any vegetarians).
3. People walk up to me, and greet me (maybe I'm just noticing this).
4. I am connecting more with my Puerto Rican roots (thinking more about other Latino "roots," like yucca, malanga, yautia -- I am always hungry).
5. My wife smiles at me more (perhaps because I'm spending more time at the dinner table -- I am always hungry).
6. I find myself picking up the phone more ... when it rings! (True story. AT&T has the records to prove it).
7. I am making more money (OK, I was able to afford to give myself a raise -- the first one in two years after two self-imposed pay cuts).
8. My car responds better to my foot on the pedal.
9. Oh, right, I have a new car (my first in ten years).
10. Why do birds suddenly appear, everytime I am near? Maybe I'm just imagining this (I am always hungry).
