Let me get right down to it. We ate at Wendy's tonight, because it was always super-cheap and I'd had a hankerin' lately for their chili. In the past we could eat there for between $3 and $5, with senior pops (which are sized for Tom Thumb, I think). The last time we were there, the dollar menu had been changed to a "value" menu, and many of the items were elevated to $1.29. Tonight most of the formerly dollar items were upped to $1.59, such as my chili and the plain baked potato. Now here's the shocking part: Gary ordered the double junior bacon cheeseburger. When he picked it up, still wrapped, he commented on how small it was, but it was a junior after all. He unwrapped it and removed the top to find two "burgers" with a slice of cheese in between. THE HAMBURGERS WERE THINNER THAN THE CHEESE!!! I am not exaggerating! I wish I'd taken my camera in! These hamburgers give new meaning to the term paper-thin. I can't imagine how they can stay in business much longer. As we were eating, I noticed there was a poster on the window advertising kids' meals for $1.99 for a limited time. That would've been a better deal and more satisfying. I'm sure Gary will be having another meal tonight, if he hasn't already!
I babysat Mad & Grace today while Amanda went with Doug to the doctor. Grace was shocked beyond words when I told her Papa is married! She just couldn't believe that!
We finally got a substantial rain after being teased with short-term showers lately. How does the grass green up so fast?
