Whatta burger!

Yours truly walked through the "outpatient" doors of my local hospital this afternoon with a prescription for pain pills ('cause, well, I was an outpatient). I was also pretty hungry when I walked through them doors 'cause I didn't eat nothing prior to my outpatient procedure due to nervousness over what I knew was coming, surgically speaking. Enough with that.

I stopped at Wendy's for dinner this evening, and I got me a $.99 double-stacker. I ate it, I enjoyed the hell out of it, and I passed out on my couch after taking pain pills (with the Nashville Predators-Detroit Red Wings playing on the TV).

Speaking of the $.99 double-stacker ...

I left work this afternoon at 4 p.m. to fetch a close family member who was expected to arrive at Nashville International Airport at 4:15. 'Cause of what happened today, we didn't leave the airport until nearly 6:15. Since my previous dinner plans were kaput at that point, we headed to the nearest Wendy's.

I wasn't real hungry, so I ordered a $.99 double-stacker:

As far as fast food is concerned, Wendy's serves the most homemade-tasting fast food burgers around. When I was 8-years-old, a Wendy's opened about a mile from my house. It quickly became the post-baseball-game haunt for me and my buds for the next ten years.

Wendy's burgers ain't quite as good as homemade burgers, but they're damn close. What I like about Wendy's is that their burgers are made to order, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ... as well as the best fast-food pickles known to man.

Like I said, I ain't much on fast food. But that $.99 Wendy's burger may be the best fast food bargain in town. To borrow a line from Jules Winnfield, it is a tasty burger!
