Third Person Thursday

Wednesday it was raining.  She saw an ad for beer that had about 200 words about a burger.  It included descriptions of the beef, onion ring, egg, bun and on and on and on.  She knew she needed to have a burger.

It was cold and rainy, but she was still thinking about a burger hours later, even after her audition.  She yelped: burger. First to come up: Shake Shack! Of course!  She was pretty psyched because it was cold and rainy and she knew there would be little chance of a line.  She walked right up.

“I’d like a cheeseburger”
SS: Would you like bacon with that?

“Yes please.” (She hadn’t even THOUGHT Of that! Brilliant!)

And since it was the second day of her commitment to try to lose 5 more pounds by Christmas:

“And a HALF SIZE pumpkin pie concrete.” (Now it’s only 1000 calories instead of 2000).

It was seriously the best burger she ever ate, even in the rain and her cold hands exposed.  The custard with pumpkin pie mixed in? She died right there on 5th Avenue between New Balance and Run Nike.  And she left a few bites because she had already eaten all the pumpkin pie parts (so, 890 calories).  She doesn’t really know how many calories, but she is sure it didn’t not help her lose anything.

She had a non-losing weight, non-vegan day.  She had a tiny belly ache later, but for the most part, all worth it.

    She is making me want a burger at 8:00 a.m. – I miss these regular TPT posts.

  2. Oh the power of suggestion. Nice call with “no line”, it was pain free!
