My Dear Old Friend...Friendly's
Today I started with a Reese's Pieces Sundae and oh I went BIG. Huge in fact. Of course at first I used the excuse, that I would be sharing it with my son. It was really for him, not for me, I would just have a little scoop off the top, and take the leftover home. In my heart, I knew that within minutes of the waitress walking away,you would be able to see the table through the bottom of the glass sundae cup. But I said it anyway, like a programed robot. Then something fantastic happened. I remembered I wasn't in Los Angeles!!! Sweet Mother of Jesus... I am aloud to eat again. It's actually encouraged here.
Like an animal at the zoo, who has been taken away from her natural environment too long, I was confused at first, and then like any good beast, I snapped right back into my old self and immediately ordered a plate of half onion rings/half french fries, to go with the sundae I was about to devour.
UHHHHHHHHHH. God that's good. So f-in good.
As I started to shove the food down my throat I realized, "holy shit," there may be people out there, who have actually never been to a Friendly's! I began to feel sad, and think about all the poor bastards who are less fortunate than myself. I dipped one last french fry in the ketchup, grabbed the menu out of the convenient side table pocket, and ordered another Sundae. For all my Friendly's Virgins, this ones for you!
Let me tell you a little bit about what you might be missing. First off you've got your Reese's Pieces Sundae. It is 5 scoops of the most tasty vanilla ice cream you've ever tasted. None of this Breyers home churned no sugar added nonsense. It's full on high fructose syrup at it's best, and it's worth ever year it is going to take off my life. Then comes the, peanut butter, marshmallow, hot fudge, Reese's Pieces candy, and wait for it......the most mouth watering whip cream, that makes the cows proud, perfectly crafted into a tornado Esq whip, right on the top of all that deliciousness. It's a mind blowing master piece, that dessert connoisseurs like myself, will never get tired of.
You have your Jim Dandy for your fruit and walnut lovers, Forbidden Fudge Brownie, Peanut Butter Cup Sundae and of course the delicious Fribble. Oh the Fribble. The milk shake of lovers. I have shared many a things over the Fribble. First dates, birthdays, graduations, mono! All equally memorable.
Dear dear Friendly's, you make me feel so good. So good in fact I didn't even realize when I left your glorious establishment, that the button on my jeans had burst open, and there was a smudge of chocolate across my cheek. It's like wearing a badge of honor from your restaurant, and I consider it a privilege that you have invited me in!
So in closing, I'd like to say a quick "I'm sorry," to my ass. You're just not worth it!
