I've never liked McDonald's. I always have this yucky feeling when I think about eating there with the exception of their ice cream and parfaits. Anyway, Chris and I have gone a few times after our morning walk to get parfaits for breakfast. It is a nice outing, not to mention cheap. But take a look at this McDonald's. Looks more like the inside of a Starbucks, huh? It is relatively new and located over toward a retirement community, hence the classy atmosphere and lack of a play area. It is such a nice place to go in the morning and I love that you don't feel like you are in a McDonald's.
p.s. I realize there is no logic to my hatred. I like hamburgers and would gladly eat one at Carl's Jr. or any other fast food. I think my bitter feelings stem from back when I was a kid. I distinctly remember asking my mom for a hamburger without pickles or ketchup. For some reason back then, they must have had them pre-made, because you couldn't request them without an ingredient. So I learned to never eat there because I didn't want to be forced into eating pickles and ketchup! I guess the bitterness stuck with me.
