You may have heard that Atlanta, Georgia got blasted by ice and snow. That didn't stop my boy from wanting to go out in search of a good burger.
"Mama, can we go to Five Guys?" he asked. (That's his favorite burger joint.)
"Bubba, there's some nasty weather heading our way. It's not a good idea to go out right now."
"But Mama, I need a hamburger!"
I shook my head. "Ask your dad."
He did. And my husband, being the crazy person he is, decided it would be a wonderful idea to go to Five Guys.
The boys headed out as the snow clouds gathered.
Two hours later, they returned.
"That was a wild goose chase," my son announced.
"Is that right?" I asked. "What happened?"
"Five Guys was closed!"
I laughed. "No way. You're kidding! How could they do that? Didn't they know you needed a hamburger?"
Bubba scowled. "Even McDonald's was closed!"
I shook my head. This was serious. "So you didn't get a hamburger?"
"Yeah. We got one. But we had to drive a million miles- all the way to Chili's!"
