i found a picture of bono going through mcdonald’s drive thru….so of course i had to show amanda, since it would be a dream come true for both of us if it had happened to us…here is the conversation that insued (ensued?)
sara: I KNO
sara: CAN U IMAGINE IF THAT HAPPENED TO US?!
amanda: what McDs???!!!???
amanda: I would die!!
sara: LOL I KNOW
sara: i’d like be shaking so bad
sara: id drop the drink tray all over him
sara: and hed be pissed
amanda: we’d hold up the entire line just to talk to him
sara: omg i know
sara: i’d be like FUCK THE DRIVE THRU TIMES
sara: ITS FUCKING BONO AND IM GOING TO TALK TO HIM!
amanda: youd have to call me and I would RUN from home to McDs
sara: id be like BONO U CANT LEAVE YET UR FOODS NOT READY
sara: just to give u time to get there LOL
sara: and i expect the same from u, if i wasnt working lol
amanda: oh yeah
amanda: when something like that happens..you need to share it with someone
sara: i headr the story behind the photo on saturday…apparantly bono is a terrible driver
sara: and just like took a car, and other tour ppl were following behind him
sara: when he suddenly turned into mcds and was like i want drive thru lol
amanda: dammit…why didnt he come to our McDs!!??!!
sara: and i didnt search for the picture, i just happened to find it today lol
sara: and i’m like MUST SHOW AMANDA
amanda: we should write him a letter “Dear Bono: My friend and i work at McDonalds. We like your music very much. Please come through our drive thru.”
amanda: its alot better then saying “My friend and I are obsessed with you. If you came through our drive thru we’d ask you to give us your burger wrapper just beacuse you touched it”
amanda: “then we’d rub it all over our bodies…….”
sara: carolyn had a different idea for our letter
sara: dear bono: my friend and i work in mcdonalds and we heard about your drivethru experience. i for one would like to say that i’d love to flip your burger any day. come to my drive thru because,like our motto says, we love to see you smile – and id do everything i could to make that happen.”
amanda: “Dear Bono: Please come through my drive thru so i can fuck you in a large vat of our pickles that we keep on the stockroom shelves”
amanda: “or if you prefer something a little more irish…a big vat of our Shamrock Shake”
