The Department of Defense should hire me

Robert Gates should hire me! I have found the perfect solution to getting information from terrorists. Take them to McDonald's and have them sit and watch everyone else eat and smell the delicious yummy goodness of fried food, and tell them they cannot eat until they tell everything the know. It will work, I promise.

Cooper just started Storytime at the Charlestown library on Tuesdays. It runs from 10-11. Tuesdays also happens to be speech day, which means early lunch and early nap. Today I just wasn't feeling the need to rush home and make lunch so I got him some McDonald's. The temptation was at an all time high. I manged to walk away with nothing. Well, I can't say nothing, I did get a Diet Coke in a styrofoam cup. I'm not that crazy. I came home and made myself a turkey sandwich on a bagel thin with mustard and lettuce for about 160 calories. Are you proud? I also added some Special K cracker chips for a grand total of about 240 calories. I'm becoming a tad obsessed with this calorie counting thing. I even totaled up Cooper's. If you eat the entire kids nugget meal it's 395 calories. I don't think that is too bad considering some of the other options out there for kids. He left a nugget uneaten, so that took away about 47.5. Yes, told you I was obsessed.

So, Mr Gates, if you need some interrogation techniques, take em to McDonald's.
