I think I mentioned before how I have an addictive personality. If I start to like something, I go overboard until I’m sick of it. I did this with chips and chocolate while working at a convenience store in high school, cans of chunky chicken noodle soup when I first moved out on my own, and so on. The list of things I’ve gone overboard with are endless. This is maybe one of the reasons I drink very little.
My current obsession is burgers. This isn’t a new thing I’ve discovered or anything. How crazy would it be if I just discovered burgers? But lately it is all I want. I mean, I have had three burgers in five days.
I’ve always loved burgers, even when I was a super picky eater. I would have happily had burgers for dinner every night for a long time. But I am wondering where this sudden burger craze has come from. Is it because I rarely cook meat at home, or is it a knee-jerk reaction to an eco-comedy I watched that told me to stop eating beef if I want to make any kind of difference in the world.
I understand the suggestion and I would happily comply if beef wasn’t just so tasty. Burgers and steaks are my favourite. My date during the movie was surprised I ate red meat at all when I told him I’d have a hard time giving it up. I guess it was a turnoff for him since he hasn’t asked me out again. But if I had to chose between beef and another date, I’d chose beef. If I had to chose between beef and a clean environment for my kids though, the choice is much tougher.
Either way, I need to cut back on this current addiction like I did with cola a while ago. I can have it, but in moderation. Truth be told though, I’d really love a burger right now.
