So I went for it! I got a Big Mac Combo with Fruitopia and a caramel sundae. I totally felt like a kid again. Celebrating at adult Happy Meal.
Not to worry. Reg will be taking me out for a proper birthday dinner once the weather gets to be less horrid. The funniest part about last night (other than the look on the guy's face at the cash the first time we went) is on the way home there was an ad on the radio for dieting. Some weight loss program. Reg yelled, "OMG! I already feel guilty and I haven't eaten anything yet!"
I laughed and laughed. The irony was gut busting! I even laughed as we drove past the bend in the road where our head on collision happened.
Maybe I am finally moving forward in life? All I know is it was a treat not to cook for my birthday and to have so much fun despite the scary weather. Thanks McDonald's!
