Quote of the week:

Recently, I was struck by a most startling and drunken telephone call by an old high school friend in Los Angeles, who had decided to confess a love for me from outside of a sports bar after a Lakers game. This was confusing as, last time I checked, we were platonic friends of over ten years.

My friend Paul, who is also his best friend and last year gave a most memorable quote of the week, assessed the situation:

"Amity, ____ was drunk. Very drunk. And alcohol changes everything, Amity, everything. Like the other day, my friend Allison drove us to the Carl's Jr drive-thru, and I was about to order my usual, a double cheeseburger with bacon. But since I had been drinking, I yelled over her, "NO! FREEZE! Stop what you're doing in the kitchen! I WANT A CHICKEN SANDWICH." Alcohol changes everything Amity, everything."

Although this has nothing to do with your post, the sandwich pictured reminded me of Carl's Jr's new Chicken Parmesan Sandwich. Such a disappointment. They advertise that sauce will be dripping out, but i questioned whether they even remembered to put the sauce in! An angry letter to come.

I haven't had Carl's Jr in roughly eight years, but I only used to get the southwestern sandwich, with the chile.
