I woke up this morning with an overwhelming excitement – for lunch! Yesterday we planned on trying a new place for lunch, Good Time Charlie’s. I heard about this place over the weekend but didn’t get a chance to try. Knowing that this establishment was famous for “down home” rich flavors I knew that I had to be prepared! This morning I carefully chose a loose fitting silk top that would no doubt conceal the food-baby I was anticipating from the chicken fried steak. Confident, I walked out of my apartment and was on my way to work.
Yes, I was daydreaming of mashed potatoes and cream gravy the entire way.
I stepped out of the car and that’s when I felt it, the cool silk blouse was stuck to me! I was a victim of static cling! The more I fussed with the damn shirt the worse it became. For the record, static cling is not the ideal situation for me…EVER. Static cling is not flattering on anyone, especially if you don’t have a perfectly flat stomach. I’m not talking about 6 pack ripples here; I think you know what I’m saying…. No bueno.
Endless conference calls and impromptu meetings have interrupted my lunchtime plans. Good Time Charlie’s is a significant distance from me and I’d need plenty of time to enjoy my meal and no doubt the immediate regret afterward. It just wasn’t going to happen today. So I settled for the next best thing, Freebirds! I love Freebirds and I was thrilled when I was able to convince a couple of my girlfriends to join me for lunch.
Food-baby commence. Come on, its Freebirds, even the baby burrito is ginormous! We sat outside and enjoyed out quasi-Tex-Mex cuisine. Respectfully, I could not leave a bit of the “Hybird” behind. Not one of us left with regret.
Yes, I still have static cling
Yes, I’m sporting a food-baby
And yes, I’d do it again…for Good Time Charlie’s.
