As I was leaving the gym I peeked into one of the owner’s offices and noticed a KFC box. Weird. When I sat down to watch TV afterwards I noticed a Wendy’s commercial.
Both of those got me to thinking. I haven’t eaten at most fast food chains in a long time.
The main reason, I guess, is that I don’t know where to find it. When I first started this blog I lived near a Wendy’s but that was it. We didn’t know where anything else was. When we thought fast food Wendy’s was the only option. I probably ate there two times over the history of this blog.
Here, I know where the Pizza Hut is. We ate there for a cheat meal a couple of weeks ago. That was the only visit we’ve made there in forever.
As for the rest of the major chains? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I haven’t had a Whopper, Big Mac, Gordito, etc. in over a year.
One visit to Pizza Hut and two visits to Wendy’s. That’s it. For a whole year. Wow.
I’ve lived in DC for 5 months now and I still couldn’t find a McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King or Taco Bell to save my life. I don’t think I’ll bother to look either. To be honest, I haven’t really missed them.
