I rose this morn with much to do -
Hopped in the car and off I flew.

No time for breakfast, that I knew -
Glad "Dunkin DoNuts" has Drive Thru.

In need of dollars, quite a few -
Went to the bank teller's Drive Thru.

Then filled all my prescriptions too -
At "Pharmacy's" brand new Drive Thru.

Some bills to mail in box of blue -
Off to the "Post Office" Drive Thru.

Picked up the laundry cleaned anew -
Just stopped at "Suds & Duds" Drive Thru.

With lunchtime near, my tummy's queue -
Got a "Big Mac" from the Drive Thru.

The car by then was low on fuel -
Full serve at "Shell", just Drive on Thru.

And when they fill the tank for you -
Your car's washed free - in their Drive Thru.

Library books were overdue -
The curbside slot is a Drive Thru.

Then videos must go back too -
"Blockbuster" has their own Drive Thru.

In need of milk and bread, I knew -
I stopped at "Dairymaid's" Drive Thru.

The family asked "Please, can we do -
The "Drive In" show when dinner's thru...???"

Hehehe..loved this one Nan...but somehow my carma isn't too great. Never seems to fail that when drive-thru I go, I seem to get behing HUGE extended families who park 2 feet from the mike and hollar. As I sit there slowly salivating, I watch many go inside and come out again with their pretty little sacks, making faces at me, the little twits. Can't move, Monster Truck behind me, growling his displeasure. Can't move, extended divorce in progress in front. Mmmmm...my arm is looking mighty tasty...I wonder if it will hold me until I can reach that little squeaky box....

You never realize how busy we all are until you think about all the "quick fixes" we rely upon. Well put, Nan.
