Last night, Sherry called me and said that we have a lot of sides pre-prepared in the refrigerator, but no main dishes. She asked me for suggestions on what she could pick up to make that we could eat and I suggested picking up some chicken at El Pollo Loco. She said, “Hey, that’s not a bad idea. We haven’t had that in a while.” When she got home, she told me that it was the first time she had gone through a drive through since we started our Whole30 last September. She said she almost didn’t remember what to do, where to go, and her driving skills inside the thin lane were out of practice.
I didn’t realize it, but it’s been over a year since I myself have gone through a drive-through. Everything we’ve eaten has either been prepared by us or at a sit-down restaurant and Paleo-compliant. I guess that’s why today I was called a “Skinny guy” but a group of gentlemen. I felt proud and happy. It’s been a long time since I’ve been called that.
