Bright Side of Fast Food

We hung out at Burgerville.

Cameras don't have feelings, as far as I know. But there are times when this digital camera does capture my feelings even though I cannot express them in words. For example, the night I got together with my best friend, especially when it comes to talking about sports, singles activities, and meeting gals who like to talk sports at singles activities. haha I'm joking about the last one, but I wouldn't mind if it came true.

I wasn't trying to change the world that night. But I was hungry and wanted to eat something. So I asked my buddy to go with me to Burgerville, a fast-food restaurant located near where the dance was taking place.

After I ordered a milkshake, we sat down and talked for a while before I realized they hadn't brought it to my table. I walked back to the counter and saw it there, melting a little, but that didn't matter to me because it was a good milkshake.

We didn't stay there long because we were going to a dance just down the street. I don't recall dancing, but I did a lot of talking, and listening too. Instead of staying until the end of the dance, three of us decided to leave a bit early and went over to Burgerville. That was my idea. Guess you probably figured that out! haha

Had some fun!

This picture was taken last month in Portland, close to the fast food restaurant where I went with a buddy. The Oregon Convention Center is in the background. We met in that area, walked to the restaurant and hung out there for a short time. I was getting hungry. (Yeah, it does seem like food is all I care about, but it's just not true.) My hunger was due to not eating much that day, though I did later.

Hello. It's Friday! Time for something good to eat, and then post the pics. (I'll post the pictures this afternoon.) I went to Wendy's for chicken sandwiches and french fries around 11 a.m. today and made it easy on myself by using the drive-thru. Wish you could have been here. Enjoy the weekend!

It's Fry-Day! I mean Friday.

Chicken sandwiches and french fries
from the local Wendy's

I only ate the equivalent of one sandwich and less than half of the fries. My goal is to stay trim but still have fun eating with friends and family on special occasions. Like fry-day! I mean Friday! Anyway, take it easy. Eat something and think of me; I'll do the same. haha

So, maybe your dog's stomach thinks it owns you, too?!

"Chicken and fries are mine!"

"Hey, who said that?"

Well, man and his best friend think alike. But if you said "Man wins again!" ...Thanks for the vote of confidence! Note: The dog doesn't get much food we eat, but (shhhh... quiet!) don't anyone tell her she's only a dog.

If you want me to dance until breakfast, serve it at 10 p.m.

During my walk in Portland (see last post), I spotted a Wendy's (pictured below), and during the same walk saw McDonald's and Burger King. It's convenient when they are in the same area. I didn't eat fast food in any of those places because there was a dance that evening. Not that I know how to dance. Clearly I'm a much better eater than a dancer. haha

Anybody else out there like to dance at home and sing along with a song on the radio while looking in the mirror. I know some of you are saying "Me, Me, Me!" Hmm, ok, thanks for that. But No, you didn't just win a contest. LOL

Here's how the Wendy's sign looked a couple of weeks ago, when I took the picture from the sidewalk.
But actually what I like most about Wendy's are their chicken sandwiches, which are among my favorite fast foods ever. But I was hungry for breakfast because they were advertising it at this Wendy's. And where I live the Wendy's doesn't open early for breakfast. That's ok, I could eat breakfast at night if they choose to add it to their menu in the future. Hint, hint...

This is part of another photo from the sidewalk. It was a large photo so I cropped it to show why I was hungry for breakfast, not supper, in the evening.

Almost forgot to finish with my little story about a night on the town... I was on my way to the dance and also planned to spend some time with my best buddy, especially when talking about sports and other topics of interest to single guys. Ok, how can I explain this... perhaps it's best to say: Ladies, we hope you talk about us, too. Yeah, I'd add 'haha' but this time I really, really mean it. Bye!
