Spend Some Time in America!


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:


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.


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.


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?


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!
