My Last Combo Meal 3-28-11

R.I.P. Mickey D’s! Oh how I have longed for your taste for many years. You have been there for me like no other. You were on every corner in every urban neighborhood, and when others would shut down for the evening, you were still there for me literally 24 hours a day. You don’t ever close!

You and your calories gladly embraced me with open arms!  Why did you have to take part in destroying my waistline? I mean I loved you man! You and your perfect salty fries, special Mac sauce, and the most enchanting fish sandwiches I’ve ever had!!! Oooohhh and the nuggets….oh the nuggets [where is a nugget on a chicken btw?…umm yeah] you gave them to me in 4,6,10 and 20 pieces with my favorite assortment of dipping sauces.

 When I was sad, you always had a Happy Meal for me [Yes, I am an adult now, but I collected all the Shrek figurines and watches out of the happy meals. So what! ]. You always had something to bring me back to you… first it was toys, then it was the $2, $3, and $4 dollar value meal specials! Ooooohhhh whhhyyyyy! Just when I thought I had the will power to leave you, you go and enhance your dollar menu by making my favorite breakfast sandwich, the Sausage Mc Muffin available for a dollar! Mann, I don’t know if it was you or the mass produced processed sausage that has my head spinning like crazy!

From your combo meals, to your specials, to your desserts…you had me hooked like a kid on Phonics! I had to have you, even if it meant I would have to pop a blood vessel and clog my main arteries.

But you are gone now; I’ve said my final goodbyes when I rolled up to your “farewell viewing” the other day [better known as the drive thru.. Hey!, I had to get one last taste of the tummy tossing tantalizing fast food! Sue ME! ]. So R.I.P. Mickey D’s and “Make it a Great Day!” You will be missed. We had such fun fat times together! As recording Artist, Justin Timberlake said in one of his songs, “I’ve been traveling down this road too long…. The old Me is dead and gone, dead and gone, DEAD AND GONE!” and so are you to me!
