I am so flustered right now. Well, not as flustered as I am surprised. Actually, I guess you can say it's sort of even really. Usually the two fit hand in hand, right?
I am both surprised and flustered.
Okay, now that I've finally figured out my feelings about the situation, let me explain the situation to you. I went out to lunch today, wearing my usual disguise so people don't jump me because I'm the "famous Nakano Hiroshi from Bad Luck". My disguise consist of sunglasses and a sweatshirt with the hood pulled over my head. Aren't I creative?
Anyway, I didn't really feel like eating out, but I felt like going out to just, you know, drive around. I hadn't been around much of Kobe and I mean, hey, I had no idea when I'd be back in that city, so I thought it'd just be nice to go site seeing and stuff. So because I wanted something quick to eat I ended up at the McDonalds drive thru. I ordered the usual, chicken mcnuggets, a Big Mac meal, and a Oreo Mcflurry.
Now, everybody knows that McDonalds is known for their quick service. You're bound to have a longer wait at a stop light than at a McDonalds drive thru. So you can understand if I was a little peeved when it took them a good five minutes to hand my food out to me. Because I was frustrated and hungry I didn't act very rationally and decided to take out my anger on the lady who was handing my order out to me. I told her that the only reason McDonalds served a billion people is because of me and that if they wanted to reach a jillion they'd better not lose me as a customer.
Now get this, when I finished raving and I finally had my food in my hands the lady tilted her head to one side, smiled and said “thank you for taking care of my Hiroshi-chan” and closes the window in my face. I was expecting more of a “thank you and have a nice day, jerk”, so what she said kind of caught me off guard But at the time I just brushed the comment off as nothing more then a rambling from an obviously crazy lady. It wasn’t until my stomach was full and I was back in my hotel room that I actually gave more thought to her comment.
I would like to say that the lady is just some fan trying to get to me, but I have these doubts. First of all, my relationship with Hiroshi-chan hasn’t really been publicized. Those who have seen us together are residents of Tokyo, not Kobe. Lastly, I have never once meant, nor have I seen Hiroshi-chan’s mother. He always has some wild excuse has to why she’s never at home.
I don’t know why this is messing with me so much. It’s probably just nothing at all. I shouldn’t let it bother me.
All I know is that I have this huge craving for a McDonalds Big Mac and…I think I’ll be dining in this time.
