FRIDAY NIGHT… The week is done. Most young couples cannot wait to spend a fun exciting night out together. What does a Friday night look like at the Gamblin household: Sophia and me on the couch watching TV and a conversation that starts at exactly 9:30 PM of who will get McFlurries from McDonald’s. I am a huge ice cream fan. I am not just any ice cream fan I am a Dairy Queen Blizzard fan. It was like a loss to the family when Dairy Queen left Enumclaw in the 1990’s. Every time I drive to work and past the Enumclaw Forest Service building were my beloved Dairy Queen used to sit I get a little weepy. You better believe when I am in Bonney Lake or Auburn and fast food is suggested we are stopping at DQ.
So what was the best thing to replace my Blizzard fix? Thank you McDonald’s for introducing the McFlurry. Now my relationship with McDonald’s when it comes to ice cream has been hit and miss. I tried to order a LARGE Mcflurry and I was told that they only come in Small and Regular. I asked can I get it in a large (yeah I am fat and love ice cream I don’t car. That brings me to another point it is funny how people are sometimes ashamed to say they ate at McDonalds. If you see someone you know there they automatically say I don’t want to eat here my kids forced me here while they pound a quarter pounder). Anyways back to my LARGE McFlurry. Thinking that the McFlurry was only offered in 2 sizes didn’t make sense. This is coming from the company that made Billions off the phrase SUPER SIZE me. I was told again that they do not come in Large. Of course I am thinking it is a 17 year old kid (like Eric Epperson was back in high school) is going to do me a favor and give me a large cup. The response I received from my order taker shocked me… “We do not offer Large McFlurries because it is part of McDonald’s plan to fight obesity in America.” I wish I was joking. Normally I am pretty quick to respond with something clever. I was in shocked obviously this was not your typical 17 year old taking my order. I of course was in shock while I took my McFurry. Looking back on it I should have ordered just two regulars and stuck it to McDonald’s. Or I could have just done an Andy Sandberg and threw it on the ground.
OHHH YEAH THERE IS A YOU TOP IT FROZEN YOGURT PLACE IN ENUMCLAW.
THEY ARE OPEN TILL 11:00 PM ON WEEKENDS & THEY OFFER LARGE CUPS.
