Last night, I was cut short from getting my goal. I attended a fellowship and they served pork barbecue and rice. No, I didn’t get some. I politely refused and joked that I was using ‘Restraint’ as it was also the topic of discussion last night.
On my way home, I felt a little hungy so I stopped by McDonald’s. I knew it was an unhealthy choice and my choices are limited. I used to order chicken meals but since I vowed to take the ‘Pescatarian route’, I knew it was no longer an option. Thank God there was Fillet’o’fish on the menu.
I ordered. I payed. Before doing that, I was determined that if the crew would tell me it was not available, I’d turn my back and just go. But she asked if it was ok for me to wait for 4 minutes. Just a breeze, I thought. So I went back to my seat and started picking the fries from my tray (still unhealthy, I know!).
Then I saw her coming. With an apologetic face, she told me she was sorry and that my order was not available. I, the phlegmatic customer said it was ok. She offered the McSpicy chicken instead. I thought long and hard. And then I realized she was waiting for my approval. I said I was going to take it. And that, ladies and gentleme, was how I was defeated.
I walked away stuffed. But, a little down. I passed by the fruit stand and this huge lady was beckoning me to buy apples for 10 pesos a piece. My eyes lit up. I bought five and went home.
I had apples for dessert last night. And tonight, I had them for dinner. So, I guess, tomorrow would be Day 1 again?
Happy Eating!!! 🙂
