Field Report

Sonic is definitely a guilty pleasure. We ate obscene amounts of delightfully unhealthy fare....all was either deep fried, smothered with mayonaise and cheese, or loaded with sugar. I seriously dipped DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE into a sauce whose first three ingredients were: High fructose corn syrup, sugar, corn syrup. Also the environment was definitely something new for us. Pulling into the burger docking station facing a wall, ordering and paying without human face to face interaction with menus acting as partitions between the other cars felt somehow...pornographic. Like we could gorge ourselves on guilty food anonymously, I was sort of waiting for a peep show with my coney dog.

It reminded me of the Motels in Mexico where you pull into a garage and the curtain is pulled behind you, money is deposited through a hole and the room is yours for 4 hours. No one is the wiser. Oh, you don't know about those? Um, me either.

Anyway, Sonic. Will we be going back? Hell yes. After our arteries regain bloodflow. Maybe sometime next spring.

Oh, GAWD! I miss Sonic!! That's the first place we go after we land in Amarillo. Sonic for a cherry limeade and a chili cheese dog with chili cheese fries! Then I'm dripping in grease and sugar through the whole visit!

And there's one in Hillsboro! Man! That's a haul for me, but I might just have to go. I hear there's a Popeye's Chicken that's open up around Beaverton, too, which is TC's favorite. If you've never had Popeye's spicy chicken, you should try it, too!

Mmmm, Sonic cherry limeade . . . I'm going to be craving that all day today!
