The Folks at McDonald's are Psychic or They Hate Me.

By: The Dude on the Right
Either the folks at McDonald's are psychic, or they just hate me.  Here's why...

It's Sunday morning and I am reading my morning newspaper.  There isn't anything totally exciting in the newspaper, then again, there usually isn't, but I still enjoy, even in this digital age, reading the newspaper.  So I finish the news portion of the paper, and now it's time to peruse the bundle of ads to find stuff I don't really need that's on sale.  Nothing at Circuit City, nothing at Meijer, nothing at the furniture stores, and there it was, the Best Buy ad.  I know, right now you're wondering what the hell a Best Buy ad has to do with the people at McDonald's hating me or being psychic?

Well, it seems Best Buy has once again teamed up with McDonald's, and there, in the Best Buy flyer, was the announcement that the Monopoly game is starting up again at McDonald's come October 3rd.  Even though I have never won anything cool during McDonald's Monopoly promotion, there is a sense of excitement pulling those little pieces off of the hash brown wrapper, off of the fries' box, or off of my large Diet Coke.  What will it be?  Will I be an instant winner of maybe a breakfast sandwich?  Better yet, maybe I'll win a cool prize instantly.  Better yet, the excitement of wondering if this will be the piece that completes my trilogy of Pacific, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania Avenues.  My game board becomes filled, usually with that one elusive piece that makes me a big winner missing for each block of properties.

I love the McDonald's Monopoly game, and here is why I know they hate me, or might be psychic.

I'm watching "The Biggest Loser" last Wednesday and decide it is time to start my diet plan and actually do some exercising.  But being the procrastinator I am, and with the weekend coming up, I look at the calendar and decide that October 1st would be the perfect day to start.  I could eat a little crappy on Saturday, a nice steak with a big ol' baked potato smothered with butter and sour cream, but then go grocery shopping on Sunday for nothing but healthy food and start hitting that exercise bike on Monday morning.  It was a perfect plan up until Sunday morning when I saw that damn Best Buy ad.

Now what the hell am I supposed to do?

I love the McDonald's Monopoly game, but still want to be a big loser, and herein lies the true dilemma.  If I skip the dieting and play the McDonald's game I'll probably be a big loser, and if I don't play the game and eat healthy and exercise during October, I'll be a big loser.  Now I just have to decide which way I really want to be a bigger loser.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
