Friday … TMI day?
I’m lactose intolerant. I know this. I’ve been known this. (I know that’s not grammatically correct, but it’s dialogue, in a sense, and dialogue doesn’t follow grammar rules.)
Went to run some errands earlier this afternoon, including picking up something from Lowe’s. Habit Burger is right there, across the parking lot. “We haven’t had Habit in a while,” I say to my daughter, who’s driving.
Next thing I know, being hungry, stressed, and tired, I’m ordering tempura green beans and a coffee milkshake with whipped cream.
It was delicious. I savored every bite of those salty, deep-fried green beans and every drop of that creamy coffee-flavored shake.
It’s a decision I both regret and don’t regret.
(And for the record, I did take a Lactaid at the start. It helped. Somewhat.)
