It is. See below. I used to eat fast food EVERYDAY in college. We had a McDonalds across from campus and a Wendy's a short drive away. I'd eat two meals, one at dinner time, and another at like 2AM (I woke up around noon for 12:50 classes, and went through to about 6). I'd always order a Big Mac (2 if they were doing the 2fer a dollar deals), two cheeseburgers, supersize fries and coke, and a McFlurry (sometimes I'd add a chicken sandwich or if it was lent a Filet o Fish). If Wendy's had their Bacon Cheddar Classic I'd hit them for 2 of those and a few 99cent nuggets with a frosty. I'd eat that, and be stuffed until like 1AM, when all that was open was shitty Chinese. I'd get boneless BBQ spare ribs, dumplings and egg rolls by 2 AM, hit the sack between 3 and 4. I always wondered why I was a fat bastard in college, and why I had the shits so often...never touch the shit now. The last fast food I had was 5 Guys the day my son was born (across from the hospital and hadn't eaten in 24 hours) and I had to see what all the fuss was about. It's basically a glorified Wendy's, with a few more condiment options. Nothing worth writing about. However, some of my best memories revolve around McDonalds. My grandfather (he passed when i was 8) would always pick me up at noon from Nursery School-was a half day program) and would occasionally take me to the SI Mall to have McDonalds with him. He'd get me a quarter pounder with cheese, cut it in half and be so proud of me when I finished it (can't remember if he ate the other half, or if I did). But it was our time, and I still remember it fondly.
