Ever eaten at a Five Guys hamburgers? Best five dollar burger I've ever eaten.
One minor side benefit of this ongoing plumbing woe has
been we've been eating out a lot. Pizza. Chinese. It's hard to wash dishes when you're aware that every drop that flows through the house ends up in a hole out in the front lawn.
Wednesday was Max's guitar lesson, and there was a Five Guys in the same strip mall, so at his urging, that's where we went. It was great. All
they have on the menu is various burgers plus kosher hot dogs, and fries.
HUGE quantities of very good fries. They figured out the one thing they
were gonna do, and do it extremely well. If you haven't yet, give 'em a try
I was standing at the counter waiting for my
order, and beside me was a woman holding a baby and staring into the
kitchen to see if her food was ready. She didn't notice the baby, who was I would
say six to nine months old. While mom's attention was diverted he was reaching over, manipulating the ketchup
dispenser and licking the ketchup off his fingers. It was hilarious. Maybe my laughter alerted her, or her maternal instincts kicked in, but she was horrified when she realized what was going on.
"He's never had ketchup before," she said, wiping his fingers. "Well," I replied, "it looks like he's a convert."
