I thought my brain was getting bigger

Occasionally, maybe once a week, I will sit by myself at McDonald's for lunch. This is the time I've set aside to think up something brilliant to post. Lost in my thoughts and my fries, fruit and walnut salad, a humongous ice tea with lemon and 4 sugars. From brain to hand the ideas flow out of me with astounding fluidity. It's really quite amazing. Until the first of the new year, I really thought my brain was getting bigger. But now my mind is stuck on remembering it's 2010. You'd think by now I could remember to write, type or even say 2010. This is a huge set back on my brain growing to genius proportion. What a drag. Even now while sitting in my McDonald's booth my concentration is strained, my eyes keep straying towards the word search game on my trays place-mat.
"Apple Pie" is right there, I should circle it. No focus."
The guy in the other booth is doing his word search. I heard him say to his lunch companion, "I found everything but Apple Pie."
"Doh!" How could he not see Apple Pie.

For some reason, I'm reminded of the quote (paraphrased) from Sunset Boulevard: It's only the blogs that have gotten smaller.

Huh? Okay, anyway, glad to see you back. :)

Are you trying to bring my brain back down to normal size?

I can only hope I'm back, it's hard to put the FaceBook pipe down.

Yeah. I've lost so many blog posts to Facebook!

I would love to find some Apple Pie right now. I have whipped cream.

Hey! You DO know McDonald's has free Wifi now right? So now you can blog and smoke your Facebook crack while nom-nomming on an English McMuffin - Yay!

Your brain is awesome. Please don't try to make it smaller. I would NEVER think to blog about a McDonald's placemat game. I find you so interesting. I do.
