McDreamy, McDonalds, McGermy and a side of verbal diarrhea

Where have I been you ask? (huge dramatic sigh) Over-freaking-whelmed! I feel like I am carrying the 25 lbs I lost from my ass on my chest. Thank you all by the way. Badonkadonk rocks!

Mason started getting a sore throat on Friday, was a little stuffy over the weekend, and was rolling on the ground holding his ear yesterday. POW! Double ear infection with a side of pink eye, anyone? Not a pretty combo for my germiphobia. The only thing that could have made things a little better is if McDreamy were my doctor. Damn TV got my hopes up once again. A girl can dream can't she? . . . Oh God that hair!

What was I talking about again? Right, my sick boy. After our hour and a half jaunt to the doctor, Mason was starving. I told him if he was good we'd go to McDonald's. Unfortunately I have the most un-food motivated kid ever. He'd rather have shrimp cocktail or steamed broccoli. Weirdo. But I still try.

"Mason, if you are a good boy and stop hurting your sister, we'll go to McDonald's and get a double cheeseburger. And if you can't finish it Mama we'll help you, m'kay?"

"What? You don't want to go there? Sure you do, just wait, you'll love it this time."


Are you guys aware that McDonald's carry different items in different regions? When we lived in South Florida, they had a McCuban. I have also seen a McBratwerst way north. Yes, I am serious. Did you know this? So now my question for you is about their new Iced Coffee. . . there is a God.
It comes in Vanilla, Hazelnut and Regular. Do they have this at your McDonald's and is it delicious? All right, forget it. I am going to get myself one now. I talked myself into it. I'll let you know if it is worth the double cheeseburger temptation.

I did know that they had different things in different regions, but I have no idea about the coffee. I haven't been to McDonalds in YEARS.. like 7 or 8 years.

Chick-fil-A on the other hand... whole different story!!!

I feel for ya sista. I've been home with Sydney since monday. She has pneumonia...started breathing treatments today. Nothing more heart breaking than sick kids.

AnnieM said...

OMG Stacy, pneumonia? Scary. It took Mason nearly four years to get an ear infection so i guess I should be thankful?

My kids totally hate McDonalds, which rocks. :)

I used to work at McDonalds when I was in high school...we had pizza.

you will have to let us know how the iced coffee is at mcdonalds. i have been wondering

AnnieM said...

Laura, it's a little too creamy for me, but that is just me being picky. It is totally worth the 1.58 for a medium which is HUGE! I am still wordering if they gave me the wrong size because the medium was totally a venti at Starbucks.

Rachel said...

Apparently there is nothing fun at the mcdonalds down here! There is no McSouthern or anything. That's not fair! I don't know if they have iced coffee or not though.

Hope Mason is feeling better!

Poor Mason.
I eat McDonald's but don't drink coffee so I have no idea if they carry it or not.

Pedro said...

I live in metro detroit so canada is a whole 5 minutes away. In canada they have an option of putting gravy... you know like what goes on mashed potatoes and if you're really ritzy your meat selection too... on your french fries. yes i was totally disgusted just by thought. In mexico they have hamburgers with sliced pieces of ham as if it were a piece of cheese.. oh and hot peppers and what not aside from the onions, pickles etc. This was quite delicious. Plus they dont have a dollar or whatever they would convert teh value out to be menu. Oh and they just different burgers all together.. the names and whats actually in them. Oh and i know B.King does for sure, but i dont remember if McD. does, anway tacos and burritos. Again... im getting sick just thinking.
