7:06 Plane lands in Houston
9:11 Get to hotel…lucked out with the best possible parking place in stadium-sized full parking lot
10:31 See Taco Bell commercial on TV
10:33 Realize I haven’t had dinner
10:33 Massive craving for Taco Bell begins
10:45 Still thinking about Taco Bell…look up closest location on Google Maps
10:46 Decide to go to Taco Bell
10:53 Get to car….can’t leave this prime spot…the back of the parking lot will be way too far.
10:54 Decide instead to walk the 0.9 miles to Taco Bell. While I am in route, the craving for Taco Bell increases with every step
11:15 Arrive at Taco Bell…pull door handle…the door is locked. The sign says, ‘Drive thru 24 hours / Dine-in 10am – 10pm’.
11:17 Stand at drive-thru order speaker. The cracked, muffled, broken English voice says that I can’t order that way…I must be in a car.
11:17 I say “FUCK”.
11:18 Size up cars in the drive-thru line for possible tag-along options
Car 1 – gangsters
Car 2 – Man? Woman? Psycho killer?
Car 3 – Angry tow-truck driver…he is pulling a Prius and has already honked twice
11:19 Think, think, think, think.
11:23 Call for an Uber
11:29 Uber driver Esther arrives and I explain what we’re going to do. I tell her that I will buy her food and tip her extra. She’s in!!!
11:29 I say, “FUCK YEAH!”
