Until We M[eat] Again…

4256 days ago.

We all want what we can’t have.  And there’s no telling how long we will have to wait until it comes around again.  If I close my eyes and let memories flood in, I can almost taste it.  It was so good while it lasted…(sheds tear)

Many of you already know what I’m talking about, because we share the same love and common craze.  But I can just picture the rest of you puzzled.

The McRib. (sighs)

  At the beginning of November the famous McRib made another appearance in participating McDonald’s restaurants.  The McRib is not a permanent menu item here in the U.S. but it is, however, in Germany.  Why?  I don’t know, but I am thinking about a vacation to Germany. 

I must admit now that until this year I was, in fact, a McRib virgin.  And I’m a little ashamed to admit that I actually used to scrunch up my nose just hearing the word ‘McRib’.  So the old saying rings true, ‘Don’t knock it ’til you try it’.

The recent McRib craze was beautiful.  McDonald’s was even offering a second McRib sandwich for only $1 when you bought a medium McRib meal.  Victory!  The person taking my order could even sense my anticipation.  I’m not sure if her smile was because we shared the common bond or because she thought I was just another crazy McRibber.  Honestly, I didn’t really care.  I just wanted my McRib.


The weeks flew by.  Did you know that they only offered the McRib for 6 weeks?!  (panic strikes) Why?!  When will it be back?!  I didn’t even get to say goodbye…

By now you’re either identifying with my sense of loss or you think I’ve lost my mind.  All I know is that those 6 weeks were some of the best weeks of life.  I don’t when I’ll get to enjoy a McRib again, but my memories will help get me through…
