Yesterday afternoon I ran a lot of errands. (Blogging is not the only thing I've been too busy to do for several weeks.)

Feeling snacky I stopped by a McDonald's for the first time in many months, if not years. That place sure has changed. (I know it is not as monolithic as we think.)

I ate a chicken snack wrap. For $1.29 it did what it advertised. I was a bit saddened to later learn it was not as healthy as I expected: the ranch sauce?.

Mostly I was surprised by the menu. There were six chicken choices, four burger choices, four salad choices, and a bunch of desserts. I don't think anyone would have predicted, when I was a teenager, that in a few years American McDonald's would have more chicken than burger options.
