In the past several years, out of a desire to eat healthier, my visits to Mickey D's have dropped off precipitously. When i do go there, it's usually for breakfast on a roadtrip, and if it is at lunch or dinner, my meal of choice will pretty much always be a chicken sandwich instead of the beloved Quarter Pounder with Cheese of my youth.
And even though they've been offering salads for the past few years, I'll admit that I have yet to try one. I'm often leery of eating salads from a fast-food place; just how long has it been sitting in that little plastic box, anyway? But on the other hand, my hat goes off to Wendy's for offering that little Caesar salad as an alternative to fries; they've gotten my business quite a bit because of that. Those salads have never been anything but good and fresh, so I have no idea as to the source of my skepticism about the same salad in an entree-sized portion.
At any rate, I just thought this was somewhat interesting that a place known for its hamburgers would sell more chicken than a place which specializes in chicken; I was also surprised to find out that the most T-bone steaks in the world are sold at Waffle House. I guess you really do learn something new every day...
Animal stories: A staple of my old KNTU radio show resurfaces from time to time on this blog...
- A drunk man in Germany leaves his horse "parked" in line for the ATM as he sleeps off his condition on the bank floor.
- A woman in Wyoming has come under fire from her neighbors for keeping a goat in her minivan.
- A bull in rural New York state wanders into someone's garage and attacks their car.
- A pair of deer takes an impromptu tour of a retirement home after one of them wanders up and trips the automatic door.
Blowing out the candles: Happy birthday to my old friend Danny in Indiana, a fine musician if there ever were one.
