I eschewed fast food years ago. Not because I think it’s fattening and stuff.
Just simply because I know it’s not real food.
I will eat a side of beef if I know it actually came from a cow. That wasn’t injected full of hormones. Or given antibiotics.
But I’m really skeptical of the “meat” or “chicken” or “fish” I get when I order “food” from any restaurant, really.
So, it hasn’t been all that difficult to simply drive past any fast food joint and just make some eggs when I get home.
Except when it comes to fries. Which I’ve lamentably discovered are my kryptonite.
And yes, I know they’re like the freaking devil and probably THE worst thing you can ingest.
But, holy shit. They’re so good.
It’s what I imagine a heroin addiction is like. If a heroin addiction involved salty, fried potato sticks. And didn’t involve needles.
Anyway, all of this to say that I had some fries today.
And since I don’t believe in going to confession anymore but I’m still racked with Catholic school guilt, I felt I needed to share. And maybe ask to be absolved.
Perhaps a couple Hail Marys will do the trick.
If not, the 5 extra pounds I probably put on should be punishment enough. Or all the arteries I just permanently hardened.
