"Halkun goes down a path from where there is no return."
So it's 11:50pm here in Wisconsin, and I decide to go and get some food...
I pull into the 24hour drive-though at McDonald's.
"Can I help you?", the speakers ask
"Uh, Yea. I'd like a Number 1 with a large coke.. No ice."
"Will that be it?"
"You have any of those pony toys around?"
There is a wait for about 45 seconds. He comes back
"Yea, we have some, you want one of those horses too?"
I fought with myself... Should I correct him? Would that be odd?
"Yea, toss one in" I said, a little more meekly than I should of.
He gave me the price... I should of asked for the yellow one when I had the chance. Should I ask at the window? What exactly is the pony-negotiation protocol is something like this? I round my car around the corner to the window and pay. It was a girl. The person who took my order was a guy. There is a disconnect. I didn't say anything. I get my credit card handed back to me.
I silently drive on to the next window. I get my bag of food and my large coke from another girl.
"The horse is in the bag", the girl said.
I pause again, and then it get the best of me...
"It's not a horse... is a PONY
It was like I was watching myself say it. I wanted to face-palm right there. I came to the realization I just lost my chance to ask for the yellow one... I was going to have to deal with with I got.
I drove home in darkness. "I bet I got Pinkie Pie", I thought to myself. That would be neutral... I wanted Fluttershy, but I guess I could live with Twi. I hope it wasn't Rarity. Please let it not be that one...
It was Rarity. She now stands proudly next to my monitor.
I want to laugh, but inside, I kind of want to die....
