I have this strange introverted discomfort with using restaurant drive-throughs. I don't like to have to sit there and read a menu and make important food decisions while someone on a little speaker is rushing me, and/or there's a line of people behind me. But the other day on a whim I decided to take the kids to pick up food at Taco Bell. I haven't been there in years, so I glanced online first and discovered that I was able to place the order and pay for it through an app. And then all I had to do was click a button on the app when I was close to the store, and our food was ready when we pulled up to the window. They should market this app to introverts for sure.
My second big restaurant story for the week was the discovery of a typo on the little red pepper and parmesan cheese packets from an Italian place. Is the office really located inside a "suit"? We all make mistakes, but just like I said last week, it's especially important to proofread before you advertise your business.
My third big restaurant story (It was a rare week of eating out.) involves a scary piece of wall art hanging near our table at a Tex-Mex restaurant. How'd you like to have this guy staring at you while you're trying to eat?
My two year old is an aspiring artist. That's great, but the problem is that she's been practicing on the walls:
Nobody in our household is particularly fond of bugs, but when I spot something especially weird looking at the playground, it's worth snapping a pic:
It's hard to see in the picture because I didn't want to get too close. It looked like he was thinking about jumping on me.
The playground at our parish is a popular place for my kids to hang out. And now there's some extra entertainment right next to it, thanks to the start of the construction project of a new religious education building:

I love priests who have great senses of humor. In my latest post for Austin Catholic New Media, I finally compiled a list of the funniest things I've ever heard priests say. Check it our right over here.
