« Countdown | Main | Yukon ho! »


Three days.

Went to Wendy's for lunch today, because I was in a bit of a hurry. Wound up behind two elderly ladies in line. They were well into and beyond their eighties. Possibly mother and daughter. Slow moving. Slow speaking. I was praying they would order together from one of the two registers. No. They had to each go to a register to place their order. The line behind them immediately started growing geometrically. They both had to ask questions about the stuff on the menu. "What's the difference in the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and the Homestyle Chicken Sandwich?" "What is that two and a half pound burger for $4.99?" (It was Combo number 2: a 1/2 pound burger, but she didnt want a combo...)

I aged significantly waiting behind them in line.
