The Serious & Official McMuffin Addendum

by Rachel on January 28, 2011

As we head into the weekend, I need to share a very important update. I think you’re going to want to know this when you get up tomorrow.

So, do I love my rules? Yes. But if there’s one thing I am, it’s open-minded. And I realized that sometimes…rules must be flexible.

You see, last Saturday morning, I woke up wanting McDonald’s.

Per usual, I went through the criteria.

Did Friday night’s activities qualify?

Well, I’d had many things the night before: pizza, two different kinds of tequila, beer, and one god-awful shot of SoCo and lime. Oh, and a lot of fun.

But I didn’t have the one thing I really needed to justify my McDonald’s visit.

The next morning, I had the look of a great night out…but I simply didn’t have the bangover.

What’s a girl to do?

I decided that it was time for the McMuffn Addendum: you may get McDonald’s on credit.

If you wake up in the mood for McDonald’s and feel confident that you will be earning it later that night, due to your big date or your big bottle of tequila or whatever it may be…then you may get your McDonald’s a day early.

But afterward, you must day what I did — send a text to whomever you’ll be paying it off with and let him or her know what’s up.

Sending out, “Hey, baby, I just ate McDonald’s — hope you’re ready to rail me tonight!” via text at 10 AM on a Saturday morning: totally awesome or rock bottom?

Anyway, I just thought you’d like to know that before you get your weekend started! Have a good night!

Literal-LOL right there.

So because you changed the rules, does that mean that it changes from “inner slut enabling inner fatty” to “inner fatty enabling inner slut”?

Either way is a win, in my books!

Love this… I use some silly things to justify my Chipotle addiction (which, for an addiction, is thankfully not consumed too often). After every race (if you run 13.1 miles or more, Chipotle is WARRANTED!), when I’m celebrating something awesome, or as a reward for something awesome.

And to answer your question: TOTALLY AWESOME.

I hope you brush your teeth first :)

So what happens if you wake up the NEXT morning with a major bangover, craving McDonald’s AGAIN!?

I’ve never had a McMuffin! My boyfriend keeps telling me I need to try one because they’re so awesome. I would get one just for the excuse to bang.

Can I say that I deserve a McMuffin for NOT having anyone to burn the calories with? I think that also trumps any other criteria.
The heart rate monitor sparked my interest though, I think next time I’m in a comfortable relationship, I’m totally checking calories burned during sex! I wonder if the heart rate would spike when…you know, haha. Oh you should so do that for me, I’m curious!

I love the video and the music! As a single lady, I wonder how I am going to justify this meal. My judgment is not the best lately with picking men. Therefore, I usually have already made one bad decision so the meal would be #2. That might be too many bad decisions in one day for me:)
