Fatty fatty fatty...

So on Wednesday this week I ate more food than I think I have ever eaten in one day in my entire life. Ugg I'm such a fatty!

I started out normal, coffee and cigarettes for breakfast (jk: almost a year now!) and when lunch rolled around my buddy Mark showed up. We went to the local dive for sushi so I had the California roll pack and a small salad (I knew it would be a big day of eating so I tried to go light)
We were both part of a special meeting in our office which moved from conference room to top secret focus groups riding around in buses to the competition for live feedback... (I will spare you the boring details)


First stop on our tour: McDonald's

I tried the new southern chicken sandwich which after I put a glob of mayonnaise on it was not half bad. Kinda a small knock off of the Chick-fil-a original chicken sandwich. You can't beat Mc Donald's fries though and I had an iced coffee to wash it down.

Stop number two: Carl's Jr.

I had the new Jalapeno Chicken sandwich which if it was hot, it would have been a flaming explosion of mayonnaisy delight, but alas, it was luke warm as most of their food is...
Stop number three: Jack in the Box

By now I am pretty full so I only order the sampler pack. My friend Mandi eats the cheese sticks and I went for the jalapenos and spicy chicken bites (of course dipped in ranch) the whole dang box was burnt to a crisp (what a turn-off)
Finally we finished our meeting behind the secret glass as they grilled the focus group; more boredom ensued...

Then came the dinner party. To thank us for attending the top secret meeting they took us to a fancy dinner at Champps in the spectrum. It was a nice place and everyone had drinks and got happy (except for me; I didn't mention, but I quit drinking a couple months ago) I had a diet coke and sampled the appetizer platter which was very good...

After an hour of schmoozing the big wigs we finally sat down to dinner where I continued to eat; I ordered satay sticks with peanut sauce and ate every last one.
And of course when the company pays you cant forget dessert: a big slice of cheesecake (which 4 of us split) I had to unbutton my pants for the drive home... I was stuffed and I am sure I consumed a weeks' worth of calories... I am only taking liquids today to try and cleanse the grease and fat I have ingested this week... Like I said, I'm such a fatty...

OK, that first joke about the cigs was NOT funny. I almost fell out of my chair.

Secondly, I can't BELIEVE you ate that much food!! Ugh! Maybe your gall bladder will give out soon and we can have matching scars. :)

Third, GOOD JOB on the drinking! (You were getting to be a bit of an alky.) J/K ;)

There is a lot of food on your recent posts...I think you need a hobby to get your mind off food! That is really awesome that you stopped drinking. Darrick stopped drinking when Micah was born so it has been 7 years. I'm proud of you but I think you are just trying to be like us...The Holy Hays's
