The Best Cheeseburger I’ve Ever Had
I can’t remember the day, I can’t even remember the month, but I had the best cheese burger ive ever had in fall of 2012.
It was a sunny day and I was out ridding my bike, whenever im downtown I try to stop by recycled sounds, a local music store in downtown Lincoln Nebraska. I always stop by to check and see if any green day paraphernalia had made its way into the store, and like normal there was none, but as I chatted with the owner I learned that American idiot on Broadway was going to be at the lied center in march. I was sure I didn’t have enough money to go but I stopped by the box office anyway just to see how much it did cost. I walked up to the window and asked how much one ticket cost, and not to my surprise they cost 65 dollars. I had 37 with me at the time. I said thank you and turned but then the clerk asked. “What Grade Are you in?” I turned and said “im a senior.” To my amazement I qualified for the student discount witch was HALF OFF! After purchase and tax I had $2.50 and one ticket for American idiot on Broadway! Just four rows back I might add. I was ecstatic! I started biking home thinking of how long of a wait I had when I biked past McDonalds. I turned back I locked my bike, went in, and ordered a double cheeseburger with just ketchup because that’s all I could afford. I was half way done with my cheeseburger when Good Riddance (Time of your Life) started playing lightly inside the store, my favorite Green Day song. It brought a tear to my eye, just the pure odds of that exact song playing within the 3 minutes I was inside the store, it makes you wonder if there is something bigger at work in the world. I finished my cheeseburger and let the song play out, I just closed my eyes and listened. When the song was over I stood up stretched out my arms and exclaimed. “WOOOOO!” The lady mopping the floor asked me. “What was that for?” I just replied with. “That was the BEST cheeseburger ive ever had.”
