When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade right? What do you make when life hands you cold French fries?
It was really disappointing. I love a good bacon cheeseburger and fries. I like to keep my cholesterol and my weight down so I don’t indulge in this treat very often. When I arrived home with a great burger and cold French fries, I was bummed. No it was not worth my time to go back and complain. And really let’s keep this in perspective, where is the value in driving all the way back to a fast food restaurant to complain about a small bag of fries?
There is an entire scene in one of the Lethal Weapon movies (Lethal Weapon 2) based on a rant by the character played by Joe Pesci about what happens to you at the drive-thru. I won’t print it here, this blog is rated G! Within the context of that movie it is funny. In real life, it is not so funny. Have you ever spent time with someone who completely freaks out over seemingly small issues? It can be a bit frightening. If they lose their temper over the drive-thru, what will happen when a serious issue arises?
Things happen; I know the team at the restaurant did not give me cold food on purpose. Seriously if cold French fries are my problem, I have NO problems.
When a real problem occurs, I still need to evaluate my response. I decide where I will spend my time and energy. You decide where you will spend your time and energy.
When life hands you cold French fries what will YOU do?
PS – What do you make with cold fries? Well you could take them all and put them in a bowl and mash them and then reheat them into mashed potatoes. Or you could take them and mash them and roll them into balls and dip them into panko and deep fry them. I am sure there are many possibilities. But let’s leave the recipes for the gourmet cooking blogs.
