Nothing else would do. I just had to have a Big Mac! It must be ten years since last I went to the Golden Arches but tonight I just had to go.
It must be over thirty years since I was driving home to Leicester one night and I passed a drive through. I’d never been to McDonald’s before and I’d certainly never been to a drive through. That night I was in a rush to get home but my mind kept straying back and a couple of weeks later I went on the nearly fifty mile round trip. I was fascinated! I remember I ordered a Big Mac and sat alone in my car to eat it. I repeated the experience a few times but I can’t say I was ever hooked. I like my food home cooked or at least not so stuffed with fat and salt.
But tonight I just had to have a Big Mac. It was a mere nineteen mile round trip this time. I seemed to have to queue for ever to place my order. I can tell you that the speaker system for ordering is no better than it was thirty years ago! Tonight I told the youngster to speak slowly and clearly and I could feel the grumpy old woman in me making her presence felt.
I’ve just eaten my Big Mac. I probably shan’t repeat the experience for another ten years
