For Whom The Bell Tolls. Tonight, That Would Be Me.

Tonight, I kinda missed dinner. It wasn't until about 9:30 that I was hungry anyway. I was going to head off to the grocery store for some salad fixings since I had no food in the house, (Score one point for being single! I shop when I darn well feel like shopping!) when a friend called me to come over. I realized that the grocery store would take too long. That left me with one of two options. Don't eat dinner at all, or pick up fast food. I almost never, ever eat fast food. I would usually rather go hungry. However at this point, I was already extremely hungry and since there is a Taco Bell right down the street, I figured that was going to have to be my choice of poison for the night.

The last time I was in Taco Bell was when some dork-o cheapskate took me there on a lousy date years ago. I walked into the place like a 15 year old who sneaks into an R rated movie. That is how awkward I feel about fast food. I had no idea what to order so the guy recommend a soft taco. I ordered one. He told me that would never fill me up. So on his recommendation I ordered two for a whopping grand total of 2 dollars and 15 cents. "That's it?" I said. I couldn't believe it. My grande, split americano with room is more than that and here I was getting a whole meal! No wonder Americans are getting bigger, I didn't realize fast food was so inexpensive!

As I drove over to my friends house I could smell my dinner wafting through the car. It smelled pretty good to my hungry nose. Upon arrival I was exclaiming how excited I was that my dinner was so cheap, but that's when my friend Jeff had to go and ruin it for me.

"Wow, Colleen." He said. "That's pretty cheap for diarrhea."
