Color me duped

Matthew forces me outside my comfort zone all the time. He has more of a gung-ho personality, and I have more of a not so much gung-ho personality.

Example:

Matt: Let’s move to the Florida Keys.

Once when I was 13, we made stops at five different McDonald’s on a trip from Virginia to Michigan. The golden arches have always called my name.

My culinary tastes have grown as I’ve gotten older, but if I’m on the road and need coffee, a quick bite, or just a bathroom break, McDonald’s is still my go-to fast food joint.

But McDonald’s and I, we’re on a steep downhill slide because I detest two-lane drive-thrus.

Wired on vacation: looking back

Last year, for the entire month of December and part of January my mouth was wired shut because I had jaw surgery.
