Old McDonald

Today while we were out doing a little shopping, we decided to stop at a random McDonald's for lunch with Logan. It's a nice day here and it had an outdoor play area out front that drew us in.

Upon entering, we knew something was different about THIS McDonald's...Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore. Now, most McDonald's are pretty uniform in design. They tend to be your standard McDonald's or the new updated "cafe" version. This one did not fit into either mold. So different and even more gross than most McDonald's can already be...this twilight zone McDonald's had a game theme. Yes, that's right, a game theme... McDonald's was spelled out in giant Scrabble letters above the registers. The dated booths looked like they were out of an old diner and on the wall were framed board games from the 50's all the way up to the 80's. Which was probably when this McDonald's was constructed and literally hasn't been touched since...LITERALLY...I mean cleaned too. The windows and framed wall "art" were nasty dirty with greasy fingerprints.

There was no way Logan was playing in the play "structure" out front. Who knows if it had ever been cleaned by anything other than the Florida rain ...and it didn't look too sturdy either.

Needless to say, we ate as fast as you can get a two year old to eat and headed back out into this century.
