Even Better than Better than No Coffee atall at McDonalds

One of my favorite movie moments is this scene from the classic 1948 Western Fort Apache:

This came to mind Monday because something that happened after daily mass yesterday.

I’m a sausage on a biscuit kind of guy for breakfast so if I’m out in the morning I tend to drive through McDonald’s two grab a pair with a diet coke for myself. Four buck for a quick breakfast.

My wife is a coffee person who doesn’t function without it. Specifically she’s a Dunkin Donuts coffee person so I’d drive through Dunkin Donuts for her Coffee. If she was with me when I drove through McDonalds she would steadfastly refuse to try the coffee and insist on Dunkin so I’d oblige.

For Lent this year DaWife decided that she was going to go Mass five days a week. I’m a daily mass guy myself so I’ve been happy to have her company. Because we’re out together we’ve been doing sitdown breakfasts after mass twice a week. It’s been very nice but it does cost a few bucks.

Monday after mass DaWife didn’t feel like dropping the money for a sitdown but I wanted something so I drove though McDonalds to get my usual. DaWife noticed they had cinnamon rolls so she ordered one and even though she had resisted it before, she decided to order a $1.50 coffee and headed home.

So when we got home I sat down and had my sausage biscuits and she had her cinnamon roll. She was pleasantly surprised that was warm thought it was pretty good. Not Cozy Corner good, but pretty good.

The real eye opener was the coffee. I was expecting to paraphrase Sgt Festus Mulcahy, a reaction like, well it’s better than no coffee at all.

That’s not what I got.

She said the coffee was good, not Cozy Corner good, not Dunkin Donuts good, but good. Definitely worth the $1.50 that mickey D’s charges for it.

We had a nice breakfast for less than half of what we usually pay.

Now this doesn’t mean that my wife will be switching to McDonalds anytime soon from Dunkin’s nor does it mean that we’ll be ditching our after mass breakfasts, in fact we went to the Cozy Corner today and had a very nice breakfast.

But it DOES mean that McDonald’s regular coffee has passed DaWife’s quality test. And that’s no small feat indeed.

For the record all of them lose their stripes for a while over that.

    One of our favorite lunch places that used to cost us $20-25 for my wife and I, is now running more like $30-35 for the same items. Got us thinking of going to McDonald’s more often. The food there is not near as good, but maybe good enough.
