Buddy walked in to the kitchen yeserday at lunchtime, popped something in the microwave, and casually asked,
"How long would you say McDonalds' food lasts?"
I was distracted and gave a sort of - "depends on what it is"- answer. Until it kicked into my brain that the microwave was going, and a hungry 23 year guy - who had not been to McDonalds in recent memory - was asking me about old food.
Specifically, as it turns out, a McChicken sandwich that had been in his bedroom since last Saturday.
And when I told him that Yeah, I kind of think that's too long, and filled him in on some of the dangers of mayonnaise, he dejectedly took his sandwich out of the microwave and dropped it in the trashcan.
But I have a sneaking suspicion that if I hadn't been standing right there, he would have chanced it.
