It's Saturday afternoon. Mike, Marik and I are at Jordan Landing shopping around for a new fridge. We took a lunch break from price comparisons (btw Sears had the best prices by FAR). We decided to go have some smothered burritos at La Luna. We've heard that La Frontera, La Luna & La Puente all originated from the same family, but divorces had split the restaurants up and they renamed them. Any truth to that? The smothered burritos all taste the same at each place.
Mike and I ordered our usual. Smothered burrito, no onions. Marik, a kids BRC. Meal comes. I'm busy with my phone probably. Mike digs in, eats a bite. Picks up his next bite and then stops cold. He looks at me. I look at his plate and see 4 reddish,pinkish pills in a blister pak nestled inside his burrito.
Here lemme repeat that for emphasis.
4 reddish, pinkish pills in a blister pak NESTLED INSIDE HIS BURRITO!
The label in the back read 'decongestant'.
I reached for my camera. Mike says, "no, why would you wanna take a picture of that?" I burst into laughter. Why? WHY? Does the man I married know I have a blog?! I'm not convinced he does. He tells me to go ahead and eat my meal. Again with my laughter. Mike waves the waiter over. We tell him nicely that we won't be paying for our meal as we have found over-the-counter medicine in our burrito. He is shocked, tells us no problem and walks away to show his manager. We see smoke coming out of the manager's ears. We make our way out of the restaurant, but not before watching the manager blow up and yell, "WHAT THE F***?!?!?" as he storms into the kitchen. I was still laughing. Sorta thought that someone from the restaurant would've approached us and maybe offered us something, anything as a reward for finding the missing drugs. But, no.
Keep in mind as you view this picture that a smothered burrito isn't all that photogenic in the first place, nevermind when it's got pills sticking out of it.
We didn't feel like eating anymore, so we went back to Sears and bought a totally different fridge than we had decided upon earlier. The one we ended up with was significantly cheaper, with far less frills. I really wanted the one that made shaved ice (Kenmore). We bought the shaved ice fridge's little brother. Which is broken because it's already Thursday and it's still not delivering water and I've gotten 5 ice cubes total.
Oh and here's another kicker as if the pills in the burrito story wasnt enough. Our trailer we hauled the fridge home in? It lost it's pin in the hitch and the trailer came fully detached from our vehicle three times on the way home. Three times. Ratchets aren't good makeshift pins for trailers, but that's how we Borzoni's roll (away, hah!)
