I had just gotten off of work.
My car wasn’t working so my mom had picked me up.
I was excited because she usually treated me to a late lunch when it was just us two.
We made a stop at Whataburger… a Texas favorite.
I pretty much always got a burger but ordered chicken strips.
I had been craving them for a while.
Chicken strips with fries and white gravy for dipping.
Oh, and a chocolate shake.
We got to the window, got our food and I started to dig in.
I bit into a fry… yum!
Took a sip of my shake… delicious.
And then my happy story took a sad, sad turn.
I dipped my chicken tender into what I thought was creamy white gravy…
I took a bite and gagged.
My heart broke.
Because it wasn’t that creamy white gravy I was expecting.
It was a blue cheese dipping sauce.
And it was disgusting!
It was spicy, gross, and the wrong consistency.
And it was cold!
Nasty, cold blue cheese.
Every time I go to Whataburger now, the taste returns to my mouth and it’s so weird!
Because I had been deceived.
Deceived by blue cheese.
