I woke up in the morning, got showered and put my pajamas back on ready to delve into doing marking for classes I teach. Then the phone rang.
It was my sister and she was asking me to go to Yorkdale Mall in the northern part of Toronto. She was also bringing my niece Oshun.
My sister, the baby girl and I hunkered down in my sister’s Honda to go up to Yorkdale. I was starving before we even got to the mall. All I had that day was some oatmeal.
After we did some shopping, we took the elevator up to the food court, smelling popcorn inside the elevator. My sister chose Thai Express and I chose A & W.
At A & W, I got the “chubby chicken burger” and even decided to get fries and a root beer – since it had been a long time.
I devoured the food. However, my eyes turned out to be definitely bigger than my stomach because I couldn’t eat for the rest of the day afterward, and we had our meal at about 2:00 p.m.
“They give you a lot of food at A & W,” I said.
I’m not so sure this is definitely a good or bad thing. The important thing was spending time with my sister and my niece. The food was a way for us to spend even more time together.
