In Which a Cheeseburger is Unavoidable

August 25th, 2010

Over the past eight and a half months, I have tried to remain mindful of the fact that pregnancy is not, in fact, a free pass to eat anything and everything yummy that crosses your path. I have exercised restraint.

Stop laughing. I mean that.

While I have been indulging in more (and guilt-free) sweets than usual, I try to eat pretty healthy during the day. I bring fruit and cheese sticks and wheat thins to munch on at work and usually have a Lean Cuisine dish as my lunch.

This noon, however, the office microwave inexplicably turned against me in an unprovoked attack on my frozen entree, reducing what should have been a tasty chicken enchilada to a completely inedible mass of rock-hard gunk. I literally could not cut the block of rice with a knife. It wasn’t pretty.

Thus I had no recourse but to leap in my car and head to the nearest food purveyor. Which just happened to be McDonalds. And may I just say that their new Angus bacon cheeseburger is about the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life? Wow.

    Gee, rock hard rice vs McD burger, and with bacon and cheese yet? Not much of a choice.
