Texas once again disappointed me this morning. For years I’ve been telling people this cute story about how they have shamrock shakes YEAR ROUND at the McDonald’s in Shamrock Texas. Lies. Damn lies…
We pull into the drive-through. I desperately scan the board for the little plaque that reads – (Shamrock shakes served year round!) – that I remember seeing only four or so years ago. I know if I was the manager of this silly little McDees in a town called Shamrock – well – you’d bet your ass we’d have Shamrock Shakes whenever you wanted.
The rest of the story goes like this:
“Two Shamrock shakes please!”
“You fail, please drive around.”
In New Mexico we headed to Roswell. Smelled like cows. We moved on.
Made it to Las Cruces, NM – now we only have a short hop to Phoenix tomorrow.
