After spending the night competing at the World Trivia Night – where our team, the Riverside Pub, had a respectable finish but was mostly proud of having raised the most money for the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa – and spent the remainder of the night celebrating our success (and I am not talking about our ranking).
As the hectic flow of bar-goers was pouring out on Elgin street, I decided to walk away from it all in order to collect my thoughts, and, as always, I had many of them.
I passed the Golden Arches located on Elgin, I hesitated, then I walked away.
But the damage was done.
I kept walking, but a thought started creeping in my head – I was going to lose my free small fries! The deadline to claim my winnings was November 23rd. I could not wait any longer. And, the wife was not around to stop me!
I kept walking. I had to redeem my prize. And I ended up at the Bank and Sparks location, which was not as busy as the one on Elgin. Good, I thought. I probably should go in.
Even better – the hockey cards are back!
I had no choice now.
A free small fries.
I redeemed my fries.
I got 5 packs of cards.
And, for good measure, I added a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.
At 3 am, it sounded like a great idea.
Hey, don’t blame me.
I did it for the children.
The Qaarter Pounder McDo burger, for sure. And this one was particularly good. Maybe it was the hour of the day – the staff was not rushed, and this was quite enjoyable.
PS: I am looking for a GM willing to trade. On the table: Marc Savard, Shea Weber and Daniel Alfredsson .
I am not happy about them showing up twice in my packs. Serious offers only.
