In a McDonald's full of children on Halloween....

The noise particles vibrate
And bounce off every object
No matter how remote

The costumes
Which must have made sense
At some point in the evening

Spinning jumping bouncing
Shouting running screeching
THUMP shout yell run stomp

Too loud for brain cells
To peacefully cohabitate
Too rambunctious
To facilitate any rhyming
Total chaos

Please pass the aspirin
With a side of fries

Do you spend your time in one McDonald's or several? If it's the same one, you're either their best customer ordering Big Macs all day or their worst sipping on the same cup of McCafe coffee all day. Not having seen a post from you in the last several days I suspected the latter and was worried you got the heave-ho and lost your wi-fi. As for all the noisy kids I guess free wi-fi comes with certain challenges.

nonamedufus: I mostly stick with the same location, though I do have a couple alternates I can visit. I do love refilling drinks, but I also buy other stuff throughout my time there too. They claim to like me; I can only hope they're telling the truth. (!)

You must have amazing bladder control, Janna.

nonamedufus: It's not as amazing as you might think. I compensate by (usually) snagging the table closest to the bathroom. I sometimes joke that the table (and possibly the bathroom) should have a brass plaque with my name on it.
