i'm sitting in my car, trying to decide if i want to be a complete swine, or if i'm just going to try to be an average person with an average appetite. i really want a 20-piece case of chicken mcnuggets. but, i opt for a double cheeseburger, and an order of fries. no drink, just the sandwich and fries.
at the first window, i had the cashier my 3.20, and from behind him i hear, "mrs sargent!"
one of my students.
oh thank goodness for small miracles, that i wasn't buying a jenga-tower of mcnuggets with a shake and fries . . . and pies and a whole hot mess of fat & acne. no one wants to be the chubby teacher caught in the drive thru buying enough food for three people.
so, bullet dodged. this time.
