Overheard: Maggie comments on the interior design of Chipotle

I know: I said I wasn’t posting until 2012. And that’s still totally true! Except . . . that Maggie just said another one and I had to get it down on paper. Or something like that.

Anyway, my two boys, Nick and Gavin, love Chipotle; it’s their idea of fine dining, competing only with the Five Guys burger chain for favorite fast food dispensary. Maggie, unlike her neanderthal brothers, has far more refined taste. She won’t eat fast food under any circumstances. But while we were out shopping yesterday, Gavin, Maggie, and I ducked into Chipotle for a quick bite, despite Maggie’s protests.

Maggie sniffed and observed, “It looks like a really fancy version of a prison cafeteria.

I don’t know. I think maybe she nailed it.

But what is my eleven-year-old daughter doing in prison cafeterias? Anyway, after these guys sat down, we knew it was time to leave.

    Maggie is a very smart girl. Love it! Thanks for posting.

    Astute, that girl. I’ve toured 5 prison cafeterias, and only 2 Chipotles. Prison is cheaper (for the patron), but Chipotle smells a heckuva lot better (cafeteria-stink is the second most memorable part, for me).
