A funny thing happened this week. I find it is good to have sense of humor when dealing with some of the symptoms of pregnancy. For instance, I decided to get a salad at Burger King the other day. Really wanted a double cheese burger, but thought we needed some veggies. So got the salad, parked my car, chowed down on half of it and then threw it up. Luckily I was able to grab a plastic bag in time, and I was parked. I've become a professional thrower upper, so proud. Along with my salad I also got a small french fry. Which I downed immediately after the salad. So lesson learned, more french fries less salads. By the way, Burger King you need to change your french fries back to the way they were. I'm very disappointed in the new type and will probably not go to your establishment anymore. I have a feeling you would have gotten a lot of business from me in the coming months. Too bad so sad.
