I have a confession.
I eat at McDonald’s every now and again.
And I let my kids eat there, too.
Did all my organic, crunchy, tree hugging, vegan followers just drop dead?
I know I’m supposed to say that I’m offended that McDonald’s makes the food that makes us fat. I know I’m obligated to complain about the nature of the way the food is prepared. And, I KNOW that I’m required as a parent to not tolerate the giving of toys with food so as to not train our kids to associate food with fun or some such nonsense.
But, the fries. Sigh. I like them. A lot. And, truth be told, I supersize for an extra $0.25 every. single. time.
Don’t look at me like that, Little Miss Judgy Pants. There are worse vices. Like cocaine. And meth. And The Real Housewives series.
McDonald’s has a special place in my heart because, for the 10 months I was pregnant with Fruit Loop #1, the ONLY thing that would stay down in was a McDonald’s plain hamburger hold the pickles. No joke. For 36 straight weeks, when my nausea would subside long enough for me to actually want to eat anything, the absolute ONLY thing that wouldn’t wind up in the toilet or on a guardrail by the side of the road was wrapped in white paper with the MickeyD’s emblem on it.
Yes, I ate McDonald’s fare when I was pregnant and my kid turned out okay. Well, okay enough that I had to start a blog but we will just ignore that little point.
The fact is, I eat at McDonald’s and my kids have literally been eating there since they were in utero.
And I’m delighted to tell you that my friend Sarah of est. 1975 does, too.
As far as funny goes, Sarah is one of the funniest bloggers you will meet. I mean, anyone who lists “the ability to suck farts back up into my ass” on her About Me blog page has to be at least *a little* funny, no? Her blog is irreverent, hilarious and the tagline “a blog for the ladies of Generation X” means that if you were established in or around 1975 (like me…ahem), you will find almost every word she types will make you pee your pants. And if were were established well after 1995, she’s probably making huge amounts of fun about your generation….just saying.
I am honored to have Sarah here for our weekly Tribe Tuesday gathering and that brings me to Sarah’s visitor post about, you guessed it, McDonald’s.
I freely admit that I’m a mom who has used the drive through at McDonald’s but, I can honestly say, I’ve never had an experience like Sarah’s….but, even if I did, I’d still go back.
“We should never have trusted this McDonald’s.”
And don’t lie: now you want to go to McDonald’s, right?
