Yes, you read that right.
Though I’m not 100% sure that you can consider what I did to be cheating at the game as much as it was just cheating the system, I still cheated in someway.
Let me start by saying that I’m not a McDonald’s person…by any means. Of course I stop there for a soda or a sweet tea on the go every now and then, and their fries are delicious, but that’s one of the reasons why I typically stay away from the restaurant. It’s just less tempting if you keep your distance, ya know? Anyways, there comes a time, once a year, that I don’t stay away from McDonald’s. It is a magical time in the United States where the fat get fatter and the thin get thicker all for money.
No, the Biggest Loser is not having a spinoff show called the Biggest Winner…McDonald’s Monopoly is back.
It’s a fun time of year, but it is also tricky seeing as you want to maximize your game piece intake, but not your calorie intake. This is usually not a problem seeing as I can get a medium Diet Coke and receive 2 game pieces, but that was back when every item had just 2 pieces. Well, this year, everything has changed, for a large french fries now has 4 pieces. FOUR PIECES. Knowing this, I couldn’t simply get 2 sodas, that’s silly! Why not get one large fries AND a soda…that’s 6 pieces! Genius!
So, I went to McDonald’s to get my first batch of Micky D’s fries in like, forever, along with a Diet Coke. I got my 6 game pieces…I was happy. Then, I saw it…I saw the one itzy bitzy thing that changed everything–a tiny fly. Yes, there was a fly on one of my fries. I then sat there for 5 minutes trying to decide what to do as I had many options to choose from. I decided to bring the fly to the manager’s attention to get a new batch, but not before I peeled off the 4 game pieces. So now, game pieces in my possession, I returned the fries, got a whole new batch AND 4 more game pieces bringing my total game piece intake for the day to 10. TEN.
I am a genius.
I am also going to hell.
