As the World Turns

My parents worked for a local PNW (Pacific Northwest) burger chain, Burgerville, for 25 years. They were both fired about ten years ago within 24 hours of each other during a big muckity-much shakeup.

For the last five years or so, my dad has owned a Pizza Schmizza franchise, also a local chain.

Today, my mom sent me this e-mail:

"Yesterday Figaro's Pizza bought out Pizza Schmizza and
today Starbucks bought Burgerville."


It's a changing world, yo.

April fools?

I hope it was April Fools because I liked Burgerville, and I hope they don't change the walla walla onion rings. And the real ice cream shakes. Not that I actually live anywhere close to a Burgerville anymore.

Probably is an April fool's.

Our one at work today wasn't fucking funny either.
