Conversations I almost had had - the Tim Horton's version
So last Sunday the kids and I end up at Tim Hortons so I can get coffee for me and my Lady-love. Not particularly newsworthy, I know, but there’s a fellow there who has brought two German tourists out for breakfast. He’s trying to explain all the wonderous joys that are constitued by Tim Horton’s in the morning. Like a double-double.
“What’s that?” asks Herr Guest.
“Two sugars and two cream.“
“Ooh, I don’t want the sugar.“
“Well, you can get it with just the cream. Now, you better look at the doughnuts and decide what you want now. Would you like a muffin or a Boston Creme?“
Okay, my feeble mind phased out along the way, probably helped by two children anxious for me to goon them up on baked goods, I’m sure. The next part of the conversation I heard was Herr Guest asking, “Can you go to McDonald’s for breakfast here?”
“Well, I guess, but I don’t really know why. It’s not really healthy for you.”
Not that I necessarily disagree or anything, but I have a really hard time listening to someone giving out free health advice while lining up for a double-double and a doughnut-doughnut. Ease up a bit, mac. How about we let other people form their own opinions, mmkay?
I mean, if it’s alright for me to think that..
