Who Went to McDonald's?

Today's exercise is going to be completed by my lovely sister, Juniper Trela. Yay for guest posters! :) I'd be remiss if I didn't inform you of her blog, We Can All Use a Little More Juju. Either way, go check it out.

Without further ado, here is my sister's contribution to my little bloggy.

Exercise #112 : "Who Went to McDonald's?"

Who is the most unlikely person - living or dead, famous or non - you can think of to be in a fast food restaurant? Imagine that person just walked into McDonald's. Why are they there, and what happens?


Perhaps he was just being ironic, but he just looked too uncomfortable to be standing in one of the lines at Burger King on purpose, based on some vindictive hipster ideology.

He seemed to be hiding behind his slightly slouchy knit cap and unkempt kinda-beard, dodging direct eye contact with the other patrons. He shoved his balled up fists into the pockets of his skin-tight jeans and rocked back and forth on his Chuck Taylors. From the line next to him, I couldn’t tell what his dark gray shirt, probably from Snorg Tees, said, as it was covered by a yellow “summer scarf.”

He caught me looking at him with a confused grimace on my face and his gaze shot to the ground, his thickly-rimmed black glasses nearly falling off of his nose. I shrugged and continued to peruse the menu, even though I knew what I was going to get the second I started towards the joint.

“They have really good chicken sandwiches.”

My head snapped back to his direction. His sheepish expression nearly made me laugh. He had just given me his excuse.


Hmm... Who is this about? I don't know. I'll have to ask her.

Do any of you have any ideas? An answer is to come!

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
