We ended up at In ‘n’ Out, which I hadn’t had in a very long time. I ordered a Double-Double combo and fell on that burger like a wolf on a lamb. The fries too. I added in a chocolate shake for dessert. I watched Vicky dip her burger in ketchup, which is something I’d never seen before. I offered her a straw for the ketchup, but she, having more common sense than Andy, refused. Meanwhile, the three of us devoured our meals. It was delicious, outstanding, and by far the best meal I’d had all weekend.
