i pretty much know all the evening staff at my McDonald’s
not by name or anything, but now when i walk in…they know what i am coming in for.
living a healthy lifestyle requires you to make some adjustments to things…especially when ordering out
i used to feel really bad changing things up and making people’s lives more difficult…
but i gotta say…i am over it.
so when i first ordered my iced coffee – with none of that syrup crap…i got funny looks.
now they just smile and make it.
it makes my life easier not having to constantly repeat myself every time i order one
which is practically every single night.
after the gym, or after dinner…or during a walk.
my morning lady loves me 🙂
she knows how i take my hot coffee (double cream no sugar – cause i am totally sweet enough)
and we have a pleasant conversation over the speaker at drive thru
she recognizes my car…and my coffee is ready before i even get there
i get to the window…we exchange pleasantries, she wishes me a good day at work.
she even notices if i am running late.
she pays attention…
i think i love her.
she makes me my coffee – quite perfectly might i add…smiles and sends me off to work
and we do that every morning…it’s like we are married.
i feel like we have something special here.
so recently, i’ve been double fisting it in the mornings
i order my hot coffee…and now i’ve added my iced coffee special.
poor Katie (that’s my girls’ name) i totally threw her for a loop
but now she knows what i want – again…and gives it to me just the way i want it
and there’s something really awesome about someone knowing what you like
and making things as you like them.
is it too much? have i gone too far?
i have a relationship with my McDonald’s…
i can’t imagine one day without an iced coffee.
there’s gotta be a 12 step for that.
i’ll deal with it once the summer dollar days are over.
until then…bring ’em on baby.
