Our trip to Wendy's

I hadn't eaten at Wendy's in quite a while but the wife wanted to go get some free frosties, so we stopped to eat. We stuck to the dollar menu, because with all the kids I have, the cost gets high really quickly. I had forgotten that Wendy's french fries have absolutely no flavor whatsoever. They are useful for carrying salt and catsup, but not much of anything else.

Their hamburgers, or more specifically, their Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, was a really sad disappointment. In my opinion, putting mayonnaise on a hamburger should be a crime. Especially one with bacon. My #2 kid got furious when he realized it not only had mayonnaise, but “salad” (as he calls it). I always called it rabbit food, and used to never touch it until I realized that it make an acceptable filler for food to keep the calories down. Anyway, #2 grabbed a napkin and tried scraping the mayo off, but could get it all, so he decided to eat just the bottom half. He gave up on that after one bite, and returned his mayo tainted top bun to the hamburger and ate the rest.

No one was brave enough to try the chili.

We didn't mention any body parts for fear that we'd get locked up, but we had fun with the frosty cups afterward (as you can see by the picture).

From there we stopped at Lowe's for some stuff, and my #4 kid (7-years-old) just had to handle things (as all of my kids do. They seem to be under the impression that they have eyes on their fingers and the only way they can “look” at something is to handle it) She dropped a floor tile and broke it. I picked it up and told her she'd have to pay for it. I knew the store would more than likely not even bother with it, but I wanted to drive the point home that they need to be responsible for their actions.

I handed the busted tile to the guy a the register and explained what happened, and that she would have to pay for it. The tiles came in boxes of 10 or so for somewhere around $6 so he figured one would be about 74¢. As he was ringing up the other stuff #4 tugged on my shirt and whispered, “I only have 62¢...” I replied loudly, “Well, I bet they've got a mop around here so you can work off the rest.” The guy ringing us up couldn't hide his laughter, and #4 hid her face in her momma's shirt. Hopefully she's learned her lesson.

Lowe's is expensive, but the people there are nice. Wendy's food seems to improve the longer the flavor of the paper it's wrapped in get absorbed into it — but one thing I have to admit — it's finger licking good.
