A Guest Post From the Queen's Mother

I’m guessing that many of you may be missing the Queen’s posts while she’s away in Poland and Israel -- I know I am! So, with the Queen’s permission, I share with you Free Fryday.

The Queen’s dad has some interesting eating habits, which may have been noted previously in this space. What you may not know, however, is that free (or as he likes to call it, gratis) food trumps all healthy eating and today was a banner day for free food.All week, Gary has been waiting for Free Fryday. What is that, you may ask?

Apparently, Jack in the Box unveiled its new french fry recipe today, and all you had to do was show up today in any Jack location, and voila -- a small order of french fries was handed to you, no questions asked! This was too good to be true, so after the Dodger game tonight (where Gary dined on a California Pizza Kitchen barbeque chicken pizza, which he ate with a fork so as not “to eat the crust”), we were off to Jack’s.

One bag would not be sufficient, so his partner in crime, Ken Madick, was schlepped out of the car to get a second bag. Not to make it a total loss, Ken also managed to get himself an order of fried jalapeno peppers, something I’ve never seen ANYONE order, ever. Imagine, if you can, Gary eating his french fries, dipping in ranch dressing, while driving on the freeway at his normal speed of 45mph.

But we’re not done! More free food on the way! Thanks to the Dodgers beating the Giants 10-8, another food run will take place tomorrow! Anytime this season the Dodgers score more than 10 runs, Claim Jumper restaurant offers free wings to all those in attendance! Can you believe this luck? After collecting the Madick’s ticket stubs, Gary now has FOUR free orders of wings coming his way.

Of course we will have to find a Claim Jumper restaurant -- hopefully there is one within a 20 mile radius of our home, but I’m quite sure he will find it. It’s free food!

Dear Queen and Mother of Queen -

After this most enjoyable post I feel that the mother of the Queen should have a regular guest spot. Awesome stories thanks for sharing, I hope to partake of some free food with Gary sometime soon.
