On the way home I asked her if she wanted something from McDonalds.
"Sure Mimi, I'll have an Egg McSandwich."
An Egg McSandwich???
What the heck is that?
And, of course, I had staggered out of the house that morning without my cell phone, so I couldn't call Shayne and ask for an explanation.
As many of you know, I used to be a McDonalds manager. Back in the '70's, when there weren't that many female managers. As a matter of fact, I have an Associates Degree in Hamburgerology, so I figured that I could handle this.
The manager in me said "Get her an Egg McMuffin."
The grandmother in me said "But what if that's not right?"
So, I asked her -
"Do you want a McGriddle with sausage? or bacon?"
"Nope, An Egg McSandwich."
"Do you want a biscuit with sausage? or bacon?"
"No Mimi. An Egg McSandwich."
So I ordered an Egg McMuffin meal with chocolate milk and just to be on the safe side, an order of Hotcakes and Sausage.
We got home and sure enough, it was the Egg McMuffin she was talking about. She ate two bites of it, ate her hashbrown, drank the chocolate milk and was finished.
We put the rest of it on the kitchen table in case she got hungry later.
Lucy, as it turned out, got hungry first and as near as we could tell, bribed a cat to knock it to the floor for her.
Next time, we will just have cereal.
I am not up to these epic decisions at 6:30 in the morning....
|Apparently, Lucy will eat an Egg McAnything|
