No Subway for me today, not after Thursday’s fiasco. I headed to JuiceZone, which serves health-concious smoothies and wraps.
“Hi, can I help you?”
“Yes, could I have the Buffulo Brown Burrito?”
“Sure. Everything on it?”
“Yes, that would be fine.”
“And would you like white or wheat?”
“Wait. Don’t you have other options? I normally get the sundried tomato…”
“Uh, yeah. I guess we do.”
“Ok, could I get that then?”
“Well, you know, we have other ones, but they are kind of old and moldy and I can’t really ensure they are any good…” the attendant says as if he merely supplying a personal reccommendation.
Wait, why again is he telling me this? Is it because the tortillas are always this suspect or he somehow merely feels bad that I have gone this long without noticing?
“Would you like to change from white then?”
Not if you put it that way.
I give an incredulous look.
“No. That’s…that’s quite all right. I think I’m good.”
I go ahead and buy a drink and return to pick up my burrito.
“Burrito? Thank you, sir.”
I go and sit down, unwrap the burrito.
Hmmm…sure enough, it’s sun dried tomato. Yum, my favorite.
