Yay! :) I thought of you last week when I had a big ol' chicken fajita burrito.

I trust I was wrapped in foil and bulging around the middle?

Wherever sir do you get these ridiculous notions?

I must tell you a story, a story of not only missed opportunities but also of great hope for the future!

You know I live quite some distance from work (48 miles). This means I drive to work in Reston, then at the end of my work day I get back in my car and head home, no time for dilly-dallying. So I was discussing lunch possibilities with the manager in the office next to me when I discovered a hole in my life, a regretful series of missed opportunities for me. Stay with me, I am getting to the point… He told me there is a Chipotle just 1.5 miles from our building! Oh the horror of believing I was in a desert all this time, yet just over the next dune was my salvation! Ohhhhh, the humanity! In an amazing coincidence the very next evening back at home I was headed to the hardware store near the mall and was passing by a new building next to the book store. I have been watching them build this strange angular glass and stone structure for several weeks. It’s different than the typical box construction that usually goes up around our mall, any mall for that matter. Well this night the sign went up declaring its corporate allegiance. For goodness sake it is a brand spanking new Chipotle! Down here in southern Maryland, an easy drive from my house, and on my usual weekend errand route! There is hope for the future! God bless us every one!

Gosh!!!! I guess I should consider myself lucky since there is a Chipolte less than a quarter of a mile from my house. All I have to do is walk east up the hill and there it is. I don't even have to walk but 200 feet out of Mont Del. I never new how truly fortunate I was. All those burritos, so little time.

If ehowton lived that close to a Chipotle I fear he would ignore the people he loves to satiate his primal desires.

Please pardon my South African ignorance here, but is a burrito kind of like a wrap? And what precisely is a bol?

My Googling wasn't terribly conclusive on this, and Google Images left me unenlightened (but staring disconsolately at my uninspiring breakfast of toast and marmalade.)

Yes! Very similar to a shawarma, but with Mexican spices. Most of the ingredients contain some form of adobo sauce (which turns hot peppers into smoky chipotle peppers) and cilantro.

The trademark of the Chipotle brand burrito IMHO, is its sheer size (probably twice the size of a shawarma) and the fact that it is created entirely from organic foods.

A 'bol' is what they call the innards of a burrito without the wrap - they put it in a 'bowl' for those carb-conscious diners. Marketing folks are a strange breed.

Re: I'm so excited!!!!

Your days as a Chipotle virgin are limited. I was there for photogoot's first time, and it was very exciting indeed. I think he had four in my presence!

Tony and I went to Chipotle a couple of weeks ago and had a tasty burrito. There he told me that he had seen you eat two in one sitting on multiple occasions. I was quite amazed as I can barely finish the one.

It makes me giggle how much you love the Chipotle. I am glad that you will have a little taste of Texas up there now. Galinda will have to tell us how she likes the new cuisine that will no doubt be eaten several times throughout the next week and a half :)

Tony and I went to Chipotle...
I know this story well.

...and had a tasty burrito.
Well, yeah.

...he had seen you eat two in one sitting on multiple occasions.
Of course.

I can barely finish the one.
'cause your a grrrl.

It makes me giggle how much you love the Chipotle.
LOVE FOR THE CHIPOTLE!

I am glad that you will have a little taste of Texas up there now.
Thank you ma'am.

Galinda...
I hope she enjoys it, but I doubt that she will become a slave to its mojo.
