I'm in one of those weeks when nothing sounds good to eat. Lunchtime rolls around, my tummy's growling, but I can't think of anything appetizing. Usually I hit this marvelous place every day for good and cheap stuff, but not even that's cutting it.
I've been craving a cherry-lime slush from Sonic lately. It's warm outside, it's more than appropriate to quench the thirst. I wanted one last night on the way home from the Adele concert (she's amazing, btw) but it was too late and they were closed up. I wanted one two days ago, but held off cause I already met the sugar quota for the day.
But today! Perfect - I'll go to Sonic, get a slush and find something else of substance to eat.
Except as soon as I pulled into the parking lot, the old stand-by, Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper floats into my head. Sonic is the reason the DP corp started canning their own version of the stuff. And last weekend I went to Sonic for a Cherry Vanilla DP one afternoon, and they gave me a Coke instead. Fail. I really, really wanted a DP at that moment and they didn't give it to me.
So at the last second after I pushed the order button today, I decided to have Sonic make it up to me and bring me a real CVDP, but what I really wanted was a cherry-lime slush. And the food didn't look good, so I just ordered the #1 combo. Which turned out to be a hamburger and what I really wanted was a cheeseburger and I forgot to ask for it without lettuce. The problem with Sonic lettuce is that it's not one giant leaf - it's all shredded. Very hard to remove.
I had to pick the lettuce off my non-cheeseburger, went to grab a tater tot and found a solidly frozen one, and drink my CVDP, which is always good, except when I really wanted a cherry-lime slush.
What's for dinner?
