Do you eat fast food? Is your idea of a balanced meal ordering it “to go” with fries and a shake?
There’s something about fast food. We know it’s not really good for us, but it’s in our nature to eat it, and to keep eating it. There’s something so uniquely American about having a burger stand on every corner (at least, I really don’t know of any other country that does that.) It’s part of our culture-we gave the world fizzy beverages, fast burgers, old blue jeans, and cool-looking 50’s style cars with fins. Nobody else would put fins on a car and nobody else, nobody in their right mind, would think you could make a meal in two minutes or less, with paper wrapped around it and sell a billion of them. Everybody else uses plates but no us. No, we had to make it cheaper, faster, “to go, please.”
And, yes, I want fries with that too.
Until next time…
