anthony is a nashville native. but he went to school in texas.
and while he was there, he developed a love for whataburger.
especially the chocolate malts.
a couple of years ago we drove down to texas for a friends wedding and i had MY first whataburger
and yes, it was very good :-)
fast forward: last year a couple of girlfriends and i went to the beach. destin, fl.
our hotel? right next to a...whataburger. which until then, i thought only existed in texas.
this year when natasha and i planned out our trip
i specifically planned in a whataburger run
and asked anthony if he wanted me to bring him back anything
"if you can find dry ice, could you bring me a malt?"
on the way down there, we noticed something.
from birmingham to florida, there were whataburgers in nearly every city along the way.
whataburger is only 3 hours away from nashville.
anthony had NO idea.
when i brought him his malt, i let him think it was from florida.
he remarked on how well it had traveled
(3 hours in regular ice...but he didn't know that!)
meanwhile, my wheels were turning.
i planned this in freaking AUGUST, people :-)
but long story short, he now knows.
(it took 30 minutes of guessing on his part before he said
"wait...there's a WHATABURGER in BIRMINGHAM?!")
we're heading out this morning and hitting up whataburger for lunch.
followed by a visit to birmingham's zoo
(because we love zoos, and why not?)
and dinner at...whataburger again.
hey, we may as well make the most of the trip down there, right? :-)
have a wonderful day!
