Danica is here for a sleepover because school starts next week, and we will semi isolate from each other for a little while until we see how the COVID wind blows. Since our area has been free of the dratted virus for a number or weeks, we all have hopes that there that the breezes will be fair and uncontaminated. But people travel, and the virus could reassert itself at any time.
So, Danica is here, and JJ will have his turn in a few days — tomorrow, actually.
For a bit of a treat for supper last night, I decided to bring home fried chicken from Pitmaster BBQ on the highway. We got there only to discover that the fryer was busted.
Alright then. We decided to head to the newish fast food place on the other side of town, Buck and Bull, but on the way there, we changed our minds and decided the shawarmas might be a better option since we know that we like their food. We parked the car, walked around the corner on Main Street, but lo and behold, Lakeside Shawarma is closed on Sundays.
Back to the Buck and Bull plan. Also closed. While a sane person might think that Sunday evening dinner might be a prime time for restaurants, they obviously feel differently in this town.
With few options remaining, it was to be burgers or some other takeaway from A&W. Dani and I had decided that it would be easier to make our choices if we were to go in rather than just yell through that infernal speaker contraption in the drivetrhru lane. Got to the door. “We will be pleased to serve you from the Drivethru.” Sheesh! What a rigmarole! We were on our 4th stop, and they were still throwing roadblocks in our way.
But we did use the drivethru and made our order. I was somewhat flabbergasted at the cost which was $42 -- not for a party of 8 but for just 3 people, if you please. From a fast food burger place! Now A&W is a step or three up from McD’s, but $42?!
Anyway, we brought it home to Sue, and it was good, and we were all sated. But my goodness, after going to 4 different restaurants and then paying that amount of coin for fast food for only 3 people, I rather felt like I had been on a ship of fools for awhile.
Forty-two bucks -- and there was no dessert!
