|When yu're sick, it doesn't get muh better than this. The same is true even when you're not sick as far as my brother is concerned.|
Life is a bit dull at the moment here in Dodge City by-the-Sea. I'm almost but not quite back to eating regular food. Have you ever noticed how much better saltine crackers taste when they're in packages of two wrapped in cellophane, as you get them in restaurants or when you order chili at Wendy's, as opposed to in the boxed packages in wax paper in tall stacks? I assume freshness is the issue and not the inherent superiority of the crackers Wendy's and most restaurants use.
Two nights ago when I couldn't keep down anything we had in the house, my mom called Denny's and placed a take-out order for 7-up or Sprite (I can't tell the difference) and saltine crackers. It was probably one of the stranger take-out orders Denny's had received lately, but they came through with flying colors. My brother was embarrassed to go to Denny's to pick them up, but my mother told them the order was already placed and he HAD to go.
Anyway, I'm not sure anything has ever tasted so good to me in my life as those crackers from Denny's, and I was able to keep the lemon-lime soda down. I'd still be eating the crackers except that my brother, too, discovered that they tasted good. Once Matthew decides he likes something, it doesn't last for long.
Does anyone know if there's a place where you can buy crackers that are cellophane-wrapped in pairs as opposed to buying the boxes with the tall stacks? I'd be willing to pay the big bucks. There's limit to how many times Denny's will fall for the "someone in the house is sick" line, even though it was true this time.
