On lazy Saturday morning’s, me and the wife prefer to go to our nearest Hungry Jack’s for a hot brekky with a read of the morning paper.
For the uninitiated,brekky is short for b/f and Hungry Jack’s is also referred to as Hungie’s or Hungrie’s and sometimes as HJ’s. Yeah,they love to shorten everything which I say is their way of re-christening everything as Ozzy. It gives a sense of belonging I reckon. For instance,they call Mcdonald’s as Maccas,football as footy and barbeque as barbie.We can’t identify with all that re-naming thingy. Ok,sorry for the deviation and back to business as usual. So today we went to Hungry Jacks. We were disappointed to hear that newspapers were no longer available and we could watch the news on TV.I usually love to suck in all the car news and some editorials, whilst the wife reads up on fashion and books et al. We didn’t see the sense in taxing our eyes watching an insipid person reading the news. Anyway today both of us had the organic beef wrap meal($6.95) that comes with a small cap(cappuccino) and a hash brown (a fried potato patty).
Also a side order of small onion rings for $3.00(The wife usually tries to be strict with these…but today I got away,maybe she was too sleepy!)
We go there because it’s close by,quality has been more or less good and we get a decent booth to sit and read.Now because of the newspaper being made redundant,we don’t know. I guess good things don’t last forever,but then we have to take the good with the bad! The decor was always red and bright..and usually clean since its not near the station or a market place.Those tend to get a lot of visitors and get dirty pretty fast. It would be nice if they played some music channel instead of the news.Same old boring stories!
The best moment of the day though, was the sight of two old timers having brekky! It was a cute sight! Both of them,with their silver grey hair glistening under the sunlight streaming through,watching tv,and having a warm brekky. That was cute! Unfortunately,due to size limitations,I can’t post that pic! For a warm brekky check out Hungry jack’s!
Hasta la vista
