Burgers and “Chicken”
For lunch today, I decided to treat myself to some McD’s. I got a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese and bacon, and I gotta say…next time I am going to Wendy’s for a Baconator.
Maybe something happened to my taste buds since going paleo, but the DQP did not taste as yummy as I remember it being. It didn’t even look like the picture.
The Baconator, the last time I had one (about a month ago) was downright delish. AND IT LOOKED LIKE THE EFFING PICTURE. It also helped that the burger actually tasted, well, fresh.
That being said…I still ate the DQP because I was hOngry. It has now turned me off DQP’s forever. So,I guess, mission accomplished in some sort of way.
Before I went to McD’s…I had to stop by the Winn Dixie for some garlic and peppers because I am about to make the most awesome sweet and sour chicken for dinner tonight. Granted, I’ve never made it before, but it is extremely rare for me to make something to eat that isn’t just downright scrumptious (unless I get distracted and forget an important ingredient like the chicken.)
I’ve been noticing a phenomenon in parking lots lately. And it is really pissing me off. When did the memo get sent out that once you hit your teenage years you no longer have to look where you are going when there are cars around? You just walk straight out of whatever store you are in (Wal-Mart, Target, McD’s, Winn Dixie, the MALL, whathaveyou) straight into oncoming traffic in a parking lot.
It’s not just the teenagers…the adults are worse! I just watched a man and his kids walk right out of Winn Dixie into the parking lot and they almost got hit by a big pickup truck. The man turned and cursed out the driver. Really? WHY DIDN’T YOU LOOK WHERE THE FUCK YOU WERE GOING??? What happened to teaching your kids to look both ways before crossing any street.
An adult will maybe get a few broken bones if hit by a car driving at 5mph in a parking lot. A child can die. You are taught from the moment you learn how to walk to not run into the street because THERE COULD BE A CAR COMING. WTF happened???
Don’t these people realize that they ARE TINY compared to a vehicle? Have they forgotten that said vehicles have BLIND SPOTS? Stopping your feet from walking is faster than a car can stop. How the eff am I supposed to see you walking directly next to my car while I am backing out of my parking spot? Are you playing “chicken”?
Is it really too much of me to ask that people be more conscious of where they are going? You can’t wait an extra 30 seconds for the vehicle to pass you? No…you have to take your sweet ass time walking as slow as possible not paying attention at all to your surroundings.
I am installing a speaker system on my Jetta along with some 50 cal machine guns and if people refuse to abide by my “GET OUT OF MY WAY” I will clear my own path…because after all, I forgot…we are living in a litigious society and I may as well help them on their way to the hospital without getting any scratches or dents on my car.
