And Then It Dawned On Me…

So I was sitting here, eating a hamburger. Mmmm what a good burger, too. I don’t usually eat hamburgers but on a whim I bought some frozen ‘prime rib’ burgers at the grocery store the other day. I don’t know if it’s the burger or the way I dressed it up, but dang it’s good.

I’m too lazy at the moment to go and BBQ so I’ve fried it on one of those thick frying pans with the raised ridges, it keeps the food out of the fat and gives the impression of grille marks. More importantly though – as it’s nearly done I melt some swiss cheese on the burger. The soft kaiser roll is lightly toasted, and then I spread some frou-frou fancy mayonaisse on it, the kind with dried tomato and simulated bacon bits in it. I finely chop a single whole green onion, and lay that into the mayo. Then I finish with a spicey tabasco ketchup. Yeah, it tastes great. So great, in fact, this is the second day in a row – I had this for lunch yesterday, now for dinner tonight.

Misha’s all into it too, she’s been sitting at my feet whining for me to give her some. Not a chance though – I let her have some of it after lunch yesterday and a few minutes later she started barfing… and didn’t stop. She seemed to barf up everything she’d eaten in the past two weeks. She wandered from room to room to make sure every room got to share in the fun of kitty barf. No way I’m going to give her some hamburger again, I’m not risking a repeat of that.

Then it occurs to me, I was kind of sick myself last night – bad stomach cramps and other unpleasantness. Then I’m wondering if I’ve noticed a trend, that has to do with eating these ‘prime rib’ burgers and then experiencing digestive problems.

Certainly, it gave me something to think about as I finished eating the burger. The experiment is ongoing.
