So, on the 2-hour drive home from Winthrop Harbor, we made it about 15 minutes before we needed to stop at McDonald's. Addison was hungry. We all got some McD's. Less than a half hour later, Colin was hungry. We all got Dunkin' Donuts.
I felt proud and satisfied to have lasted so pathetically briefly between face-stuffings. And I couldn't help but think as I was enjoying the chipotle BBQ snack wrap . . . and then the gingerbread donut and coffee, "I don't care what anybody says, this food is good."
But something along the way really cracked me up. I was in the middle of paying for the donuts when Addison looked up at the poster on the wall and said, "That's Rachael Ray!"
Now, it wasn't just the fact that he recognized her. That, in and of itself, is disturbing enough, I know. But it was the enthusiasm with which he greeted her likeness that really struck me as hilarious.
It's true. Addison has his first celebrity crush. He has said, "She's cute." I do believe she's the first person over the age of 2 to receive Addison's cute label.
I don't know what to think about it. I know a lot of people were really upset with Rachael Ray's decision to endorse Dunkin' Donuts. I was one of those who was a bit disappointed in Dunkin' Donuts, but that's just me.
Of course, Addison is also in love with Dunkin' Donuts, so maybe it's just love by association. Either way, it's cute. And if Rachael Ray . . . or a donut . . . marries into my family, I'll learn to adjust.
