From The Mud Puddle

Friday, October 28, 2005

I grew up going to McDonalds. We'd go maybe once a month, sometimes twice. It was a special treat if our parents took us there. Generally it was where we'd go on our way back home from Jackson Springs (near Pinehurst) where my aunt and her family and my grandmother lived. Usually by the time we got back home, it was late and dinnertime and it was easy to talk my parents into stopping to pick up a hamburger and fries. The only downside to all of this was that my brother ONLY liked McDonalds (meaning there really was no trying Burger King or Wendy's unless he wasnt going to be eating with us...a rare occassion) and he only liked PLAIN McDonalds hamburgers. No cheese, no ketchup, nothing. If it had one tiny onion on it, to him, it was ruined. This meant when we went, we had to wait the extra time for them to make his special order of plain hamburgers. He still eats this way from there last I heard.

Anyway, it's been a long time since I ate there. It isnt exactly "health" food, and since I am suppose to be eating healthy, it just is an easy place to skip.

I did appreciate this recent blog mcchronicles though..and reading through it kind of made me want to go to get a McDonald's burger. Just one...I'd probably only make it half way through it anymore..
