I sat a McDonald's and examined the packaging. Beefy and cheesy was the chain's current buzz words for the double cheeseburger. Melted american cheese formed on the roof of my mouth as I watched a woman leading her daughter into the restrooms. Is this for girls? The daughter asked. Yes Sweetums. The door of reality closed on their exchange and I envisioned the daughter on a road trip to Florida years later, with no memory of ever having to be lead into public restrooms. At Kinkos, I photocopied my ID, recollecting my stint in the mailroom at Kraft foods, Tampa.
