The other day, I got McDonald's for dinner, and it set off an entire chain of thoughts I've had percolating for some time.
Last weekend, while Juliette was attending a heavy metal show, I went out for some fast food. I walked in, ordered on the machine, picked up the meal, and I was about 15 steps away from the restaurant when I realized that I didn't know how much it cost. I hadn't checked. I hadn't agonized over it. I just bought it.
That's a major difference from where I was a year ago.
