"Go." I said to Mr. Cluck, who scrawled '10:46' on a pad next to his phone.
"You'll never make it." He replied. "It's a 40 minute drive."
"It'll take me 15." I said. It took me 20.
I didn't push the Cav over 80 m.p.h. and didn't have to do much weaving on the way there. On the way back, however, I nullified both those statements. I wanted my fat little bastard to be good and hot by the time I stuffed that bitch in my mouth. My first Missouri Chipotle burrito.

It was 1105, they'd been open just five minutes. As galinda822 and I approached the entrance, the doors were opened for us and a third person was standing in the middle welcoming us and handing out fliers. "I've been waiting a year for this - who do I hug?" a young lady was offered, and as if she were the sacrificial virgin, I embraced her tightly. On to business.

I had my handcrafted burrito built in short order, and galinda followed my lead (minus the two scoops of the 'hot' salsa). We were back in the office at 1136. 54 miles & two burritos in 50 minutes.

Long live Chipotle!






Been watching House M.D. with the wife on the odd evening. I really dig the theme song. Looked it up last night on http://imdb.com and discovered it was by Massive Attack. Out of curiosity I checked my sole Massive Attack album. Sure enough, it's on there. Teardrop. Thanks for suggesting them Andruid.




Taking my son to his first concert tonight. His elementary school is having its annual symphony, this one entitled, "A Martian Christmas." I tried to explain what it was he was asking me to take him to, and I don't really think he has a good understanding of what's going on, but I'll take him. We'll walk down there, stay awhile, and see what's what. I didn't know elementary schools had a symphony orchestra. I love the symphony, but I'm hoping I don't chew on my own tongue when I hear this one!

I love the look of glee in your eyes - they're just sparkling! Is that a single tear I see?

The concert wasn't as bad as the 45-minutes I suffered through Piglet's Big Movie, but I did just use it as a measuring stick...

It was a whirlwind trip! I was so out of breathe by the time we made it back I could barely eat the precious burrito!

I am officially no longer a Chipolte virgin!! woohoo!

That may be the single best story I have read in your journal to date. I love that you had to hug some poor young girl before the order could begin. I am also glad galinda was able to have a very memorable Chipotle deflowering.

Now that's really saying something because ehowton really knows how to tell a story!
He was as giddy as a schoolgirl!!!!

Sex-Mex at its finest! Welcome to the club, Galinda!

Do I get a membership card, secret decoder ring or something?

E, I must tell you that I have never been to Chipotle. I know, I know, I'm a native Texan and I've never had a Chipotle burrito. I love mexican food, but I've never been there. Perhaps your frequent comments about your love for this restaurant will get me to try it in the near future. After all, I do get paid tomorrow.

And the fact that they're a Colorado establishment further exonerates you! Still...I hope you & Cyn get a chance to ingest the spicy goodness. Be sure to let me know when you do!

Congratulations on your new big fat bastard. I have several for you on my blog. Enjoy!


I've thought about buying both seasons.


I didn't know that elemetery schools have symphonies either.

For some reason, that burrito in the picture reminds me of your recent dream where you had to use both of your hands to "oil the rod".

I was so inspired by this heartwarming story that I had to stop by and get myself a Chipotle burrito today.

I am, at this very moment, stuffing that fat bitch in my mouth.

Thank you for your inspiring post.

I didn't know elementary schools had a symphony orchestra.

I was in my elementary orchestra. We did two concerts a year. One, towards the beginning of the year, was a spaghetti dinner with live "entertainment". It was mostly an event put on to raise money for instruments, metronomes, sheet music, and such.

The second show took place shortly before Christmas break, and this was a more formal, concert-like performance. I remember playing "Up On The Rooftop" and "Oh Holy Night".

I don't think that the elementary level orchestra is meant to be taken seriously as a performance, but is meant to give parents an opportunity to glow over their darling children trying oh so hard to play the cello or the harp.

It does, of course, also help the kids get accustomed to performing in front of an audience so that when they get on to higher levels of performance and competition they at least know what its like to play in front of people.

I wonder, what instrument did you play? Bass guitar?

Does some story that you should be telling us about your golden tounge belong here, sir?
