He just didn't need any interaction in that way.
Yes I did get away. But it's not all bad news, I had three very talkative boys. The youngest doesn't talk much now but when he was little, he just never stopped. And that's the good news.

About the hamburger--I wish there was a pink slime test I could do--to see what I've got here. I still have 3 lbs of walmart hamburger I'd like to test too.

There is no pink slime test. Pink slime is just disgusting parts of underutilized beef byproducts. It's still beef. Any test that tests for beef would test positive. AFAIK there is no test that could test for presence of "pink slime." It's not illegal, it's not regulated, it's just disgusting.

Glad to know that.

Sorry I was so off topic in my last post or so--but it does fit under the part of the title regarding 'stinks'.

Thanks for the info on the beef byproducts and the lack of testing information.

The only way I can think of to test your burger meat is to take a steak or other piece of whole meat and compare it to the burger for color. Turn the burger over and use the bottom to make the comparison. The blood from the meat if it is pure, will make the burger darker as it drains to the bottom. Also, with pink slime there won't be as much blood as you would get in pure beef. If the burger is much lighter, I would say that you have pink slime. Also look inside the burger. Just compare it with a good piece of beef that hasn't been ground.

Anyone have any other ideas on how she can tell?

Saying that sound like you has a horrible disease.

I was 17. What the heck did I know. He wasn't like that when we were dating. And during the first year it was all right. Then he got injured really bad on the job. That is when he changed. He was in a lot of pain for three months. Then as he started to get better, that is when he just had nothing to say. I was having a bad pregnancy and we fell into a pattern and it never changed.
