Would You Like a Cutie?

Earlier this week, I darted into a drive-through to pick up a quick meal. Honestly, I was trying to accomplish too much in too little time, so I wasn’t entirely focused when I placed my order. This partially explains my confusion when I was asked if I would like a Cutie. I was certain I had misheard the question, so I kindly responded, “Excuse me, I didn’t quite catch that.” The question was repeated. “Would you like a Cutie?” This time, I repeated back what I thought I had heard. My response was confirmed, so I replied, “Well, heck ya: five feet, ten; employed; thoughtful; and loves animals.” This resulted in a bunch of static and the infamous request of “Please pull forward.”

Clearly, my prior knowledge was lacking. I had no idea that, at this fast food restaurant, a clementine (referred to by the brand name “Cutie”) is a side or snack option. I now know this. Boy, do I know this!

Do your school lunches include Cuties—the small orange ones? :+)

Have a great weekend!

  1. Whoa, that’s weird! My school cafeteria served the small tangerines for dessert yesterday. The kids were so excited that they were able to peel them without any help.
