How much?!

Afternoon at Mickey D’s. £16.47 is $20.45. Ow. I can remember when we both ate for £5.

What’s a meal at the golden arches set you back in America these days?

I was the pig who had the Big Tasty which, I have to admit, was both big and tasty. For a McDonald’s, anyhow.

This is the second time we’ve eaten at this one in the last year. The man who drifts around wiping tables and greeting customers looks like Mike from Breaking Bad.

Older. Grizzled. Tattoo’d. Unfailingly polite. Looks like he won’t take no shit.

The thought occurred to me that he was, in fact, hired muscle. I wonder if it gets spicy at McDonald’s sometimes…?

p.s. Kitty was much better today, but went out this afternoon and has been gone for an unusually long time now. Still we worry.

p.p.s. Kitty is back. Seems fine. Hail Bast.
