McDonald's has stolen my heart

It's no secret that I like McDonald's. Give me one of their smushed, greasy, tiny cheeseburgers any day and I will gladly eat it. But something has happened that has made me swoon at the thought of going to McDonald's. Are you ready for it?

McDONALD'S HAS PUT SWEET TEA ON THE MENU.

The remarkable part..... I'm in CALIFORNIA!! I thought I would die last week when I saw it. I bought the largest cup of it and immediately called Catherine. (Catherine didn't care. She lives in the land of sweet tea and hates it. Traitor.)

Now I grew up in Virginia. Northern Virginia. Sweet tea wasn't as abundant as it is in the southern part of the state, but you could still get a decent glass of sweet tea at many places. Check out this Virginia Experiment. Cracked me up! Once I moved to California I realized that SWEET tea wasn't in anyone's vocabulary. Shocking isn't it?

Now I am as happy as can be. It's a little taste of home. Anyone that knows me knows that I get so homesick for the east coast that sometimes it's unbearable. Fall is the worst with summer right behind.....

Now you must excuse me before I get homesick..... I am going to McDonald's!

Oh, hah! It's on the menu down here - but we just call it "tea."
