My how time flies!

"Don't eat that" she said, "they fill their food with all sorts of sugar and fat and it's just not worth eating!" It was 1975, Buffalo NY, and we were both juniors in college, and that was the last time I had a Big Mac or any other food from one of those fast food places. It's amazing how much influence a girlfriend can have on you, but it took 34 years and a 14 year old son to have a Big Mac and was it good. No, this isn't going to become a habit, nor do i really think I will have one yearly, but it sure tasted great. My wife and I went grocery shopping and on the back of the receipt was a coupon for buy one get one free big macs at our local Mickey D's. My 14 yr old suggested that it would be a great way for us to bond, so as we drove somewhere that day and we stopped and "bonded". I think I took about 3 bites from it before the guilt arose, but those bites opened up the floodgates to many memories and lots of laughter in the car. Hopefully one day when my son is a father, he'll have one of these moments and the floodgate of memories will open and this will be one of them and the laughter will start again.
