So the other day, Lucas and I went through the drive thru at McDonald's for ice cream. He saw they have a Scooby Doo toy right now and he wanted it. I said "not today" because we were getting ice cream and it was 7:30 at night and he hates hamburgers. He said he would eat it sometime if we got it, but seriously I don't believe it. I have yet to see the child eat a whole hamburger in a bun.
Tonight we did the same thing. As we drove through the drive thru he asked for a McFlurry this time--ok. Then he quickly added "and french fries". When we got the food he was disappointed that he didn't get a toy.
I said, "It comes with the Happy Meal remember?"
"That's a hamburger and french fries."
He said "THAT's not a Happy Meal."
"That's a SAD Meal"
"A Happy Meal is ice cream and french fries"
(he thinks he deserves a toy -- afterall his idea is so much better than theirs--)
"One day I'm gonna go by that restaurant and get a Scooby Doo toy"
I completely cracked up!
He is totally right...I have to agree. A "Happy Meal" is not exactly "Happy". Nor is it really "food".
I think McDonald's should listen to him and create a new "Happy Meal"....
A McFlurry and frenchfries.
What do you think?
