i was the luckiest boy in the world and i didn't even know it

went to eat at a sandwich place with some friends tonight. ordered combo #2: half a sandwich and a smoothie.

the smoothie was a goin guava.

the sandwich was made with 12-grain bread, avocadoes, sprouts, tomatoes, onions, mayo, lettuce, and a potato bug. thats right. a potato bug. armadillidium vulgare. also known as a roly-poly, pill bug, woodlouse, armadillo bug, or doodlebug.

it was my childhood all over again. it was my always my apple with a worm in it. i was the unluckiest boy in the whole world.

after showing everyone the extra ingredient, i returned my sandwich along with it's accompanying friend - still crawling along the sprouts - and asked for a new sandwich.

it's funny how what can seem to be the worst of luck can turn itself around.

while waiting for my sandwich, the apologetic cashier came and offered me a free cookie. i could choose whatever i wanted. chocolate chip, peanut butter, macadamia nut, sugar, or some others. i chose the chocolate chip. it was quite delicious.

overall, the food was all pretty good (minus the bug). my next sandwich came roly-poly free and was quite tasty. the smoothie was nice and smooth... like me ;) . a friend also shared a few bites of cheese cake with me that happened to be very scrumpshdidlyumptious.

we finished the night with a joyride through orem and a fun play at the scera theatre.

a little bug. a free cookie. cheesecake. a fun night. i'm the luckiest boy in the world.
