I'll admit it. That was me.
It still is. But only on a part time basis.
One example, the Drive- through or "thru." There are many more but I don't think I need to take a controversial turn on a such beautiful afternoon.
The list is now endless of services offered outside fast food industry; coffee shops, pharmacies, ATMs, dry cleaners. I mean, how lazy can one be to not park and walk the short distance for a 500 calorie caffeinated drink? Until I had Deuce...I'm now realizing the value of the drive-through. And caffeinated beverages.
Juggling two kids and accomplishing mundane tasks aren't so mundane anymore. Yesterday I said aloud, why doesn't the post office have a drive-thru?! All I need are 3 books of stamps. If it was legal to leave the girls in the car for 2 minutes from door to the automatic machine inside to spit out the GD stamps....I would do it.
Instead this how it went down...I got Fal out, escorted her to the sidewalk, pulled out Deuce in her carrier, made a 3 minute pit-stop between the car and front door to pick up a dandelion flower and blow the seeds, open the door & debate with F why I opened the right door instead of the left, try and convince her it is the same & to walk in, give up and opened the left door just for her, make it to the machine & pressed the 5 buttons it took to retrieve my stamps. We made it back to the car in half the time because I gave her the receipt to read.
Total round trip post office visit? 10 minutes.
Drive thrus are genius.
