Every morning, Monday through Friday, I lovingly pack the Evil Twin's lunch. Sometimes, I must pack a lunch for Buddy - from time to time something he despises pops up on the school menu.
I get a break on the Evil Twin's lunch one day a week, when he and his co-workers go to a local Chinese Buffet place. Apparently, this place has had a couple, two, tree health code violations and there have been two sightings by the Evil Twin and his co horts of bug. They now call the restaurant Bug Tin.
Honestly, the one bug was found by a co-workers son or someone and it was on a plate. The Evil Twin found a dead bug in his napkin once, but they all say the food is good and appears to be a clean establishment, plus they like the owner.
Whatever, it gets me off the hook for making his lunch one day a week. Honestly, I could make lunches with my eyes closed - I've done it soooo many times now. And, I know precisely what the Evil Twin wants and can guess what Buddy will want. But, I still kind of like getting a pass one day.
So far, every time the Evil Twin has gone to the Bug Tin, he has come home healthy. Phew.
But, now, when the office folks decide what day they're going to go, the ET will tell me, "I don't need a lunch on Thursday, we're buggin' it." So, "Buggin'" has become the office code word for eating at the chinese place. After each time, though, one person (usually one of the photographers) says, "Okay, that's the LAST time I'm going." (referring to the fact he feels he over ate).
I've met the office dudes up there a time or two, but unless I'm super hungry, buffets aren't really appealing to me. I feel like I've got to eat $X amount of food or more to make it worth it. I mean, I could go by Wendy's and hit the dollar menu for a mere $1.05 (after tax) for a bowl of chili or a sandwich.
I'm cheap like that. Plus, I like knowing my food hasn't been in contact with bugs.
