Tony spent most of today working downstairs in his office. I felt sorry for him mid-afternoon because he was working so hard, and suggested a walk. He jumped at the chance, so we put on our shoes and went to Sonic Drive-In for Happy Hour.
There's a Sonic a half-mile from the house, so it wasn't a very long walk. It's the closest place to get fast food or a soft-serve dessert, but I've never been there for Happy Hour. Between 2:00 and 4:00 you can get soft drinks, slushes, limeades and iced tea for half price.
After perusing the menu, I ordered a large watermelon slush. It was only 90 cents, and I was all about getting the most for my money. My eyes (and budget) were bigger than my stomach, though. The large size was VERY big! I started out drinking it too fast and got a brain freeze.
We sat at a table for about a half hour, then decided to finish our drinks on the road, so I put the lids back on my cup and we started walking home. Unlike a normal happy hour, the only mind-altering chemical I had to worry about was sugar; I had a major rush!
