Any city, USA (or any other country)
You drive down any main street and see the "golden arches" (yellow) staring you in the face. As you approach, you can catch a whiff of sizzling meat cooking. It makes you hungry, so you decide, "it's been years since I've been to Mickey D's...." You pull your car over into the all too familiar parking lot and try to decide, "hmmmmm, drive thru or eat in?" Hell, you find a real close spot, so you go in.
You pass the children's play area with colorful tubes for the kids to crawl around in. You see an enclosed, screened area with 100's of colorful balls for childrento jump around in and ultimatly come out crying because, "so and so hit me with a ball", yet you keep walking towards the smudged glass doors that lead into Mickey D world.
You enter, your first instinct is to run away, but you stand there deciding which of the 4 lines to walk over to. Each one has 4 people waiting, so any line is the same. I pick register 3, and I wait...........I look around at the restaurant and see the same old resin poured tables and chairs I saw last time. Hmmmm, is that the same ketchup on the leg of the table? 1/2 the tables are full and the other 1/2 are fairly clean(or fairly dirty) awaiting your arrival with your plastic utensils and paper wrapped McMeal.....
Finally, my turn. I look up to see a somewhat pimple faced kid with blue streaked hair pulled back sloppily into a Mickey D visor. "So, kin I take your order?" "Hmmmm, I'll have a Big Mac, small fries and a medium orange drink." Blue hair says, "Can I supersize that?"
"Oh, no thanks, I'd rather clog my arteries slowly and apply the fat deposits to my a$$ at a lesser speed," I say. "Huh?" "Never mind," I say to blue hair.
My order arrives in 2 minutes. I walk to a table, sit down and look up at t
he menu. Some new items have been added. A salad in a cup where you shake the dressing around and eat it right out of the cup. The old "favs" were there too. A 1/4 lb burger(wt before cooking....1 oz after cooking) A 2 oz burger and a 2 oz burger with processes cheese matter (yum.....Yuk) Spongy chicken nuggets, a square fried fish sandwich, a chicken sandwich with soggy lettuce.....
Then there's the breakfast menu, an undertoasted muffin with a dry egg, hard canadian bacon and mmmmmm, more cheese product.
For dessert, you can add on those extra pounds and clog your arteries some more with a shake, a sundae or a flurry (A shake with crushed candy peices in it.) Or even a fried pie.
Prices are still fairly low 99 cents to $3.00 for any of the items.
So, I continue eating while I listen to the kids screaming and the mothers yapping and remember why I don't visit McDonals more often!
