This mad cow disease thing has freaked out my mom. I tried to explain to her that in Texas we only eat Texas beef, which is not contaminated. But she would have none of it. I went to Gazeebo burgers for lunch today and I had to promise her that I would not eat a hamburger. So I told her I'd get a turkey burger, and she said, "What if tomorrow they announce Mad Turkey Disease? Then you'll be sorry. Only eat chicken. It's safe." Well, my rebellious side kicked in and I got the turkey burger. That's right...I walked on the wild side. The funny thing is my parents and I can't donate blood because we used to live in England. According to Carter Blood Care, we already carry Mad Cow Disease. That's just crazy!
