How to get more Choc Fudge from McDonalds...
This afternoon, we all went out to one of the large shopping centres - just to window shop and have an outing. After walking into one shop after the other and the length and breath of the shopping centre, the kids started to get hungry. We decided to have lunch at McDonalds - good value now with meals (including coke and fries) starting from RM5.95.
After we all wolfed down our lunch, TLW enquired why I had ordered 4 meals since there were so many fries left over. I worked on the presumption that the meals were only 1 ringgit more than the burger so it was worth it. TLW pointed out that if I had ordered only 2 meals and 2 ala carte burgers, I could have saved 2 bucks and then she could have a Sundae. She was just trying to make a point and being difficult. She got her Sundae anyway!
The kids, who at first declined the offer of the Sundae, proceeded to devour it with great abandon. So much so that after the Sundae was half eaten, there was NO MORE Choc Fudge left! How do you eat a Choc Fudge Sundae without anymore Choc Fudge?
I hit upon a plan. I sent my son and daughter to the counter to ask for more Hot Fudge. I figured that if I went, they may not have entertained me but who can resist two childred 'pleading' for more Choc Fudge?
They both ran back to the table in delight with a WHOLE LOT MORE Choc Sauce than we actually started off with!
I guess the secret in getting things done is to send your kids to do it? Does that make me a bad Daddy for sending my children to get more Choc Sauce?
