Spend Some Time in America!

OPEN

I'm having trouble getting people to understand the trauma I went through at lunch today, so I thought I'd make some visual aids.

I went to Taco Bell and ordered my usual; a spicy chicken burrito with no onions. It's always an adventure. Sometimes I end up with onions anyway. Once, I didn't have any rice.

Today, I ended up with quite a concoction. I took my first bite and it was all tortilla. That happens now and then, so it wasn't a big deal.

But when my second bite was again all carbs, I got worried. Did they decide to hold my meat and sauce, too? This is a lovely artist's interpretation on what I was looking at when I peered inside the burrito:

1

As I contionued my way down, I realized I had encountered the rare burrito that has been rolled the wrong way. Let me explain.

Normally, when making a burrito, the ingredients are placed on the tortilla as seen below.

2

Sometimes the ingredients are all piled on top of each other. But the main goal is that, after the burrito is rolled, all the ingredients combine.

If you had X-Ray vision and looked through the top of the perfect burrito, you would see something like this:

This results in a pleasurable eating experience because, with each bite, you get a little bit of everything. The tasty layers may look something like illustrated here:

Obviously, something had gone terribly wrong with the making of my burrito. It didn't take me long to figure out the problem. My tortilla was rolled the opposite way.

5

Do you see what a catastrophe this is? Instead of rolling it to combine the tastiness, it kept each flavor separate. Do you see how far they're spaced out?

6

The flavors were lonely!

I'm pretty sure Taco Bell is just screwing with me because I always ask for a spork. Next time, they'll probably roll it inside-out!
