(i want to start off by noting that 98% of the time, I love the food at my school. there is a wide variety of soups, entries, salads, and desserts. it’s tasty, and it’s free. this post is in no way meant to criticize our food service, which truly does a tremendous job.)
however, about once a month, horrible rhyming words pop up on my calendar. brunch for lunch.
brunch for lunch consists of: deep-fried french toast sticks, eggs, and sausage links.
i’m sure this combination is wildly popular amongst our youngest students, and i understand why it makes a regular appearance on the menu, but from my perspective, it’s a good excuse to try and take lunch off campus.
even though i had no invitations for a strategy meeting at chipotle, lady luck shined on me.
I left my seat in search of croutons. on days like these, it is important to be creative. since i was only receiving minimal satisfaction from the breakfast items, i also had a bowl of chicken soup. however this soup was lacking something, and that something was croutons.
as i strode towards the salad bar, i immediately became distracted. what is this big bowl of green? i spied a new addition. guacamole!
new plan. grab a bowl and load it up with guacamole and chips before anyone else sees this delicacy.
i returned to the table extremely pleased with myself. steve looked up slowly upon my return. the other members of the table looked over. “what is that. . .?”
without any further words, all six of my table-mates slowly stood so as to not attract attention and headed towards the salad bar. all six returned with guacamole.
i finished the day with a happy belly.
