The attendant…attendant? The person who stands in line and takes the order. What’s that person called? Cashier? They do take payments.
The Chick-Fil-A person asks the 7-year-old if she wants chicken strips or chicken nuggets.
It’s dead silent.
For like a minute.
So I turn around and look at her and her brother is staring at her and she’s just got this blank look like someone just asked her to name every digit in Pi.
“Bean, do you want nuggets or strips? The little fat things or the long thin things?”
She chose nuggets.
We get our food and we’re eating it in the car because we’re goddamn animals and she opens the bag and goes “oh. I wanted strips.”
I finished my meal in the trunk.

Virtual school starts Monday. We’ve been waiting for virtual open house to start for more than 30 mins. We still don’t know who all of her virtual teachers are. My toddler is yelling “BAGINA” in the background (IRL not virtually). And I’m virtually over it.

In marriage the phrase “with all due respect” is just a nice way of saying “bitch, I got this.”

Me: Good afternoon.
