Default McDonald's is pure evil

OK, so a convergence of crap today meant a quick dinner for the kiddies. Because they couldn't agree on something that I could quickly make them, I made the snap decision to take them to McDonald's. Bad, bad move.

Now, they love the place like all children do. Me, I avoid it like the plague. Has to have been at least a decade since I stepped foot in one. I hate it so much my wife usually takes them.

I made the mistake of actually eating there, apparently time making the memory foggy when it comes to painful events. I thought I went smart by eating grilled chicken. I was wrong. It's still McDonald's. So now I feel like my innards have declared war on me and are winning like Sherman through Atlanta.

Just had to share. Ugh.

McDonalds always gives me the "rumble down under". Then it's the browns to the superbowl.

It's not so much the rumble as it is the fact I feel like I ingested an entire fryalator's worth of goo. I mean, really, how do you make grilled chicken greasy?

It is just awful. I'm pretty sure my kids and I were the only non-obese people in there. My 6 year old is skinny as a rail and tall. She ate six McNuggets, a hamburger, fries and then an apple pie in like 8 minutes. I nearly threw up right there.

What a coincidence. I was at a McDonald's in Watertown, CT, and I think I might have been the only one who didn't speak Spanish.

I'm sorry to hear that.
CT ain't what many people think it is. Yes, Michael J. Fox, Meryl Streep, yada, yada, live up in the tony Litchfield Hills but it really helps to speak Spanish if you live here.

Lest I be accused of being a bigot, it doesn't bother me. It's just sort of a dichotomy for a state thought to be lily white and rich as hell.

Yeah, we were up in Westchester County and layed over in Stamford, CT. I get treated a lot better in Mexico, and the exchange rate rocks.

Flying in and out of White Plains? I've never flown from there. Heard good things about it, though. Only about 45 minutes from me. I should check it out.

Flying Thursday with the family to Fla. I'm not confident about the whole plane landing itself thing you described. Any chance you can pilot that one for me? I'd feel safer with someone I know from some random message board.

If not, I'll just go to McDonald's before I get on the plane. The rumble in my belly will surely take my mind off flying.
