delete, delete, delete

And mea culpa.
To anyone who read the last post which is now history (tho I may send it to the New Yorker. Just for the heck of it). I'm not working the counter at McDonalds, or working anything at McDonalds. I was working April Fools Day. But I appreciate your kind comments and you are lovely people.

  5. PJ, you mean steaked. We're trying out an almost-beef patty that looks like T-bone (with grill marks from a #2 pencil).

    WV is berspe. (I didn't say it. That was Albert's reaction.)

  6. .. altho' I also have to say that all work has dignity & deserves respect -- even at McDonald's! God knows I've done my share of staving-off-starvation work.

  7. I thought that was a old McD's cap you had on there.

  8. Ok, Ablog, don't make me delete my delete. The prior dead post had nothing to do with the nature of the work, it was a satire on a supercilious person who couldn't admit the type of job she had.

    and lastly, I don't think all work has inherent dignity. It's the people who have the dignity, if they so choose, whatever their job.

  9. I thought about that right after I posted it, but I was done.

  10. Hell's bells, I missed the whole thing. I'm home for French class and could use two all beef patty, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun right now, with a side of pomme frites.

  12. I'm a sucker.

    Why don't you get a job at Boss Sauce? I heard they have real good wings and you could give all your friends a discount, right?

  14. Remember that line I stole from you, 'midnight lies'? Well, we got published.

    Your high-priced drug lord lawyers and harrassing letters don't frighten me...just don't spit on my double cheeseburger!

    Where do I send the checks?
