My love hate relationship with …. Meatloaf

Why does she do this to me?

My beautiful wife whom I love so much. I adore this woman. she has been my wife for over 20 wonderfully happy years.

She takes her time and makes a delicious meat that taste amazing when eaten with mashed potatoes some ketchup and a side of veggies.

This meatloaf taste amazing but there is a dirty secret about the meatloaf. It gives me indigestion. Horrible indigestion. I burp all night. I cant sleep. I taste the meatloaf for days afterwords and it makes me feel miserable. I have always hid this fact from my lovely wife by just not mentioning it or by just bypassing the subject of meatloaf all together. When she asks what I want for dinner it is never meatloaf. I intentionally deprive myself of this wonderful meal because I feel horrible when I eat it. I also know if it is around me I can’t say no to it.

Do you understand what I mean? I know I will be miserable but yet I still have to eat it if it is in my presence. I have tried every antacid known to man and it doesn’t work. My misery is inevitable.  For years I got away with just not bringing the meatloaf up and then about a dozen years ago my little brother moved in with my wife and I after my daughter was born. He lived with us for a few years. He was amazing to have around and a big help to my wife and I. I Loved having him live with us except for one thing… his favorite food.. MEATLOAF.

My wife always made him meatloaf and in turn made me ill.

We finally got rid of my brother when he moved out a few years ago but it wasnt lonn until my niece moved in. Her favorite meal? You guessed it… meatloaf. In fact my wife and niece looked up meatloaf ideas together and came up with the amazing concoction of meatloaf with bacon

Why has God cursed me with this food. Meatloaf with bacon is actually better than regular meatloaf. And to top it all off it makes me even more ill.

Last night my niece got to pick the meal and of course she picked meatloaf and just like always I told myself I wouldnt eat it but I did. It was as always amazingly delicious but I am still tasting it today and I feel miserable.

Dam you Meatloaf. Dam you to hell!!
