New doors and McLife

I have a new front door!

Since I live in an area that deals with a lot of high winds, there was a day (a few years ago) when the wind whipped the screen door right out of my hand and threw it back so far that it broke.  It would still shut, but I had to pull it shut carefully.

Then, this past winter there was so much snow that the door broke further when I tried pushing it open.

Enough is enough, I finally decided.
This week I got a brand new door.

So, on those infrequent occasions when I actually leave the utopia of McDonald's Free WiFi and return to my own home, I have the momentary joy of using a door that actually works and shuts properly.

Speaking of McDonald's, today they gave me a sandwich where the bun had two bottom-halves (heels) instead of a whole bun with a top and a bottom.  Weird.  I briefly mentioned it, and they sort of slightly apologized, but whatever.  I guess shoddy meal construction is a small price to pay for Free WiFi and eternal drink refills..

If there's a 12-step program for addiction to WiFi, I have no interest in it whatsoever.

For a minute there I thought the remaining members of the Doors were getting together again. You know, like Queen. Speaking of which, you my friend are the Queen of free wi-fi even if McD's can't put two pieces of bread together. Maybe they thought that was your way. Oh, no, that's somewhere else.

nonamedufus: I wonder if Burger King has free WiFi...? Hmmm.
And if I betrayed McD a few times and went there instead, would they know somehow?
I can see it now:

Me: Hi! I'm back!

McD: Where were you yesterday?

Me: Oh. Um, I was just... uh, I decided to take a break and read a book under a tree instead. There were squirrels, and--

McD: You're lying. I can smell the flame-broiling on your clothes. Please leave.

I know what you're saying. I usually go to the same place for breakfast each Friday. They even serve me my coffee and orange juice almost before I sit down. But when I miss a week and go someplace else when I come back I get the stink eye from my waitress.
