Did you ever have one of those moments where you remember something being much better than it actually is later on in life?
You know, those times where you remember a TV show or movie being funny, only to find out later in life upon watching it again that it wasn't. Or that restaurant you once loved has become a complete and utter disappointment. Or that relative you thought was funny turns out not to be funny at all.
I experienced one of those moments last night. After spending the day at the Seattle zoo and attending a service at Mars Hill we headed for home. There's a new Carl's Jr so I was able to convince Erin (she hates the place) that we should stop (I think she loves me too much sometimes, because she lets me do things like this).
I ordered my jalapeño burger and my chili cheese fries and then settled in for what I was thinking would be a great meal.
Not so fast. In fact, I'd easily rank it as one of the worst meals I have ever eaten.
Soggy buns, bland chicken, terrible service, tasteless fries...shall I continue.
It was the first time in a long time that I actually didn't even finish my meal.
So, when was the last time you were disappointed by something you thought was going to be good?
