Can't a girl get a cheeseburger?????
So I guess the Lord must really have a sense of humor. Tonight I wasn't able to get to the cafeteria for dinner because of being in with Connor. About 8:00 my hunger pains set in and I decided to head out of the hospital for a cheeseburger. For some reason, a fast food drive-thru cheeseburger really sounded like it would hit the spot. I made my way to the car in the Giraffe parking garage to find that I had a dead battery. That's right, dead!!! I couldn't get that thing started for the life of me. I walked back in and had security come out to the car to help. Thank the Lord for Tony!!! He was able to give me a jump start and off I went to get my cheeseburger. I quickly sped down 45th street to find the nearest drive-thru. Would you believe on a busy street such as 45th street, which is where the UW is also located, there is not a drive-thru to be found. Thank heavens for neon signs because down a side street I saw the red and white glow of Jack In The Box. I made a quick, hard right-hand turn and realized I was going the wrong way on a 1-way street. Yikes, I thought, what am I going to do now???? I'm sure I looked like quite a dope, but I did a u-turn right in the middle of the road!!! Thank goodness there wasn't traffic!!! After going around the block I was finally in line at the Jack In The Box. I made my way to the ordering kiosk and quickly ordered a cheeseburger and an iced tea. Would you believe that in response to my order, the person on the other end of the big plastic sign told me, "I'm sorry, we're all out of beef tonight!" WHAT?????????????? So I said, "What do you mean you're out of beef? Isn't this a burger joint????" Her response was nothing more than, "I'm sorry ma'am, we don't have beef!" So, begrudgingly, I conceeded and ordered anyway. Would you believe I ended up with a breakfast jack and 2 egg rolls!!!!! How's that for a substitute for a cheeseburger. I am now thouroughly convinced that the Lord has a sense of humor.
