Must stop eating fast food. The first year in California, when I actually lived in San Francisco proper, those quick and greasy meals were few and far between. Few in number per capita, fast food restaraunts were easy to avoid and small, locally owned eateries were abundant. After moving to Alameda I began to slip. A little KFC here, a little MickeyD’s there. Now that I have spent a couple of months in Texas, I am participating fully in the fast food culture that I enjoyed abstaining from only a few short years ago. It’s the convenience, the ease, the price (dollar menus rule!) that seem to make this habitual. Time to convince myself that I don’t have to have it my way and that america’s drive-in will survive without my patronage.
