I used to drink 16 cans of Coca-Cola a day and eat big boxes of Little Debbie snack cakes a day. When McDonald's had that crazy Monopoly game, I would play that thing every year from the first year that they started doing it. And I would go five times a week during the workweek, even more sometimes, just to get those pieces. I could never get Boardwalk and it was just you know… that was my normal way of eating.
