So the first most for this month is really just random stream of consciousness. No thought out topic . . .
I still feel really full right now. Earlier today, I had 70 McDonald's nuggets for lunch. For those keeping score at home, that's just under 2.5 lbs of nuggets, packing a hefty 3,220 calories (numbers calculated from the information provided by McDonald's), with a whopping 203 grams of fat (that's 3 days worth of the government recommend daily allowance for fat). This all started due to a random conversation with my coworkers, where I mentioned that Jesse and Larry had had a nugget eating contest a while ago, and they had 64 and 32 respectively. One thing lead to another, and I had said piece of cake . . . at which point a coworker was offering to pay for the nuggets if I could do it. I originally stopped at 65 (having to one-up the previous "record"), but then had the last 5 on the way back to the office to get to an even 70.
The first 50 or so were easy, but I definitely started slowing down, and not enjoying the nuggets after that. They became dry, tasteless hunks, and I struggled a bit to get them down.
One of the guys at the office who later heard about this said "Why would you do that? You're not 25 anymore . . . " While technically true, I think I still behave like a guy in his twenties, still enjoying time at the bar, playing blackjack, and doing silly/stupid things just because I can.
I did end up feeling like Morgan Spurlock in Super Size Me, where he talks about how crappy the food is making him feel. I would say though that by 4 or so, I was reasonably recovered, and had half of a Capriotti's cold turkey sub at 5 for dinner.
In any case, I don't see myself eating nuggets again anytime soon. Jesse's talking about the challenge at Fatburger, which is tempting (I think it's a 1.5 lb burger, so should be simple compared to the 2.5 lbs of nuggets, right? ;)
p.s. Happy Birthday Katherine!
