As I have mentioned before, Girlfriend has a life-threatening allergy to peanuts. If she gets even a speck of peanut in her system, she could die. It’s hard for people to believe, but it’s true.
This means we have to be ultra-cautious about what and where she eats. We have just given up on going to Asian restaurants (except for sushi), because they all depend on peanuts. We don’t go to her school’s International Potluck because people argue that you can’t have an International Potluck without peanut dishes. We buy nothing at her school’s bake sale day because people insist that they be able to bake peanut butter cookies. Etc.
Oddly enough, there are also certain pizza joints we can’t go to because they have Thai pizzas with peanut sauce. Her soccer team has decided to go to one of these because it’s near the soccer field, for a “last practice” celebration. And we can’t go there. I’ve decided not to fight this because I’m tired of fighting these battles and I figure we’ll fight other battles.
Sigh. It sucks when she can’t have pizza, of all things, due to her peanut allergy.
