Wild Release #641
A SONIC Drive-In opened in my hometown not too long ago. For weeks after the grand opening, the lines for the drive-thru and drive-in lanes were so long they backed up onto the highway. The excitement has dwindled a bit, so Mom and I headed there for dinner, but only after checking their website to see how the whole thing operated. Mom doesn't like eating in the car, so we parked and sat down at a table on their patio and promptly had to move when the loudest, wettest, thunderstorm began. Once the rain stopped, we studied the menu board, pressed the red button, and placed our order. Nothing scary about it. The food was pretty good, and pretty fast, and the entertainment of carhops on wheels dropping drinks and whole trays was unending. Before we left, I left "Marley & Me," by John Grogan, on our table for the next patrons.
