What If Everything Could Talk?

The other day, I was out to dinner with my husband and my son. My son asked me an interesting question – if cows could speak, would we still eat them?

Hmmmm…. I don’t think so but then I took it one step further. What if everything had a voice? What if all the animals, fish, and plants spoke? What would happen then?

“If that were to happen, would we eat anything?” he asked me.

“I’m not sure,” I said, “but I know one thing for sure, there would certainly be a lot of clutter and noise! I wonder if anyone would listen to anything?”
