Bottomless Pit

WHOO HOO it's Wacky Wednesday time again folks, and today I'm tellin' on myself. That's right, on Sunday, I was overserved. Don't ya just hate when that happens???? Ya start watchin' the 1:00pm football game with a bunch of fabulous friends and before ya know it, it's 8:00pm, the beer fridge has been cleaned out and the case of wine that was purchased is all but killed. And don't even ask me how any of the games turned out 'cause I was too busy runnin' my mouth with my sista friends. So of course I wake up on Monday with a massive overhang that can only be cured by an awesome burger. As I'm patiently waiting in the parking lot of my favorite burger establishment at 10:45am for the doors to open, I receive a text from my friend Vanessa, who is also feelin' a bit under the weather from the shenanigans the day before, and she decides to join me. And just when I'm feelin' absolutely pathetic waiting there alone in my car to eat lunch at this ridiculous hour, along comes this big dude wearin' a red shirt and mismatched red shorts and tries the door. LOCKED to his surprise.

Now PT's Grille is a local joint serving big, juicy burgers, awesome fries and nevah disappoints. So, when an employee finally unlocks the front, big boy was through that door like white on rice baby. Perhaps he was dealin' with an overhang as well, or maybe his ginormous belly was growlin' like a hungry grizzly. Either way, he had first dibs and I was still waitin' for my lunch date to arrive.


So PT's first customer of the day was busy chowin' down on his big ass burger before Vanessa and I even got our meals, but that was OK, 'cause the food is always worth the wait.

When we are finished, Vanessa and I are startin' to feel like we may be able to make it through the rest of the day. We have come alive!! It's amazin' what a good burger can do for ya. So, we happen to look over at our friend, who also obviously enjoys some red meat at "brunch", but instead of wrappin' things up, he's gettin' a second meal. 

Apparently that monster burger was a mere appetizer 'cause now this guy is eatin' a large salad with a burger on top. Gotta get your greens in hey? I must say I was most impressed with the sheer volume of food he consumed. Of course if this dude really did have a hangover, imagine the amount of alcohol that would need to be soaked up to make him feel better. As soon as I can stand the thought of a cocktail again, I'm raisin' a toast to the bottomless pit in the red shirt who can put away some serious grub. Cheers to ya dude!!!

  1. I bet he was the champ at those "who can eat the most" burgers events.

  2. And with such an early start he could probably fit another three or four meals in!

  3. I only eat about once a month, set myself ablaze at political events, abstain from sex and alcohol and am one with the universe.
