“I’m so Hungry I Could Eat At Arby’s!”


So there I was sitting in my office and pondering lunch. My office is conveniently located near McDonalds, Culver’s, KFC, Wendy’s and Arby’s. Sometimes it’s it’s hard to choose when confronted with so many quick, easy and healthy options.

Today I chose Arby’s. It had been a while since I’d eaten there, and aside from the fact that their ketchup cups are way too small, it was an overall pleasant experience. I’m not that into fries, but I’ve always loved Arby’s curly fries. Their roast beef sandwiches are pretty good too after being doused with ketchup.

My family has always liked Arby’s. Our little town never had one though, so oftentimes if we were on the road, we’d find an Arby’s and eat there. Everyone would get excited about it, and we’d say stuff like, “I can’t wait to eat at Arby’s!” (No, I’m not joking. We really did that.) I even got into my car a couple times and drove 45 minutes one-way just to get some Arby’s.

A couple years ago, they finally built an Arby’s here. My family was excited. Oh boy were we excited. For the first few months we ate there all the time. But then, the unthinkable happened. I got tired of Arby’s.

Today was the first time I’d eaten there in at least six months. It’s funny how things work. Now that I can have Arby’s anytime I want, I hardly ever want it. I just hope the place stays in business. I know that if they don’t stick around, as soon as they’re gone I’ll be saying, “I’m thinking Arby’s.”

Cookies, Burgers and Socks

The lady who served me at McDonalds yesterday was very pleasant and nice. I think I might go back and ask her if she’d like to be my friend. If she agrees, I will then inform her that good friends hand out free cookies. Mmmm… cookies.


Anyway, as I sat at my desk munching my two cheeseburgers, it occurred to me that what I was eating probably had about as much nutritional value as a sock. After all, they charge a mere dollar for an entire cheeseburger. It boggles my mind when I think about it, and I can’t help but wonder how they pull it off. That must be some very low quality meat. On the plus side though, I’m fairly certain they taste better than a sock. I guess the only way to truly be sure would be to try eating a sock. But… I’m… not going to to do that.
