So I went for it! I got a Big Mac Combo with Fruitopia and a caramel sundae. I totally felt like a kid again. Celebrating at adult Happy Meal.
Not to worry. Reg will be taking me out for a proper birthday dinner once the weather gets to be less horrid. The funniest part about last night (other than the look on the guy’s face at the cash the first time we went) is on the way home there was an ad on the radio for dieting. Some weight loss program. Reg yelled, “OMG! I already feel guilty and I haven’t eaten anything yet!”
I laughed and laughed. The irony was gut busting! I even laughed as we drove past the bend in the road where our head on collision happened.
Maybe I am finally moving forward in life? All I know is it was a treat not to cook for my birthday and to have so much fun despite the scary weather. Thanks McDonald’s!

See now, THAT’S where a “take a penny, leave a penny” jar would have come in handy, LOL! Glad you enjoyed your birthday dinner at Mickey D’s.

I’m happy you had a fun birthday dinner, and made an adventure out of a crappy weather day.
Cracks me up about the dieting ad!!!! Hahahaha the timing of those things sometimes is really perfect!
Sometimes McDonald’s it just the ticket! Reminds me of that episode of Sex in the City, where Carrie and her Russian boyfriend go to McD’s in designer clothing.
