Once upon a time, my husband was bitten by a tick and
became a superhero and developed an allergy to red meat. I know it sounds ridiculous, but apparently, certain people from the south develop an immune response to tick bites and react to a protein found in red meat. We have not eaten beef forEVER and it’s terrible, but it appears that pork is also now forbidden.
Last night, he woke up at 2 am with an allergic reaction and drove himself to the drug store to get non-drowsy allergy medication. Then he went to work at 4 am.
But the real tragedy here is that I can’t eat steak.
