On the way to school this morning, we passed the Sonic we pass every morning. This is the Sonic to which we look for lunatic inspiration. A couple of years ago they had a sign out for “Cheesy Coney & Tots,” which inspired an entire, imagined 1970s-style television cop drama. Cheesy and Coney were the two cops, always doing things their own way, just outside departmental regulations, and Tots was their informant. “You’re a loose cannon, Cheesy! I’ll have your badge for this!”
This morning there was a a sign for their “Lenten Special.”
L: “What kind of Lenten Special could they have at Sonic?”G: “I have no idea.”L: “Maybe people are giving up tots for Lent.”G: “Yeah, I guess…Bring out your tots.”L: *laughs*G: *rolling down window, shouting in my best Monty Python voice* “Bring out your tots!…Bring out your tots!”Construction workers building a house nearby look up with curiosity.
