Why am I not totally grossed out by MREs?
I really shouldn’t be excited about eating this tomorrow (but I am!). I guess it’s because…they really did taste like heaven during CST, lol. I’m so boring with them too. I ALWAYS GET CHICKEN FAJITA. It’s my baby. I ate it during GE over and over again. And then again in CST. I trust it with my life (quite literally). Hahaha. I grabbed like 5 others for funsies. Why did I do that? They’re not even that good. Bahahaha. My mom gets grossed out about it every time I tell her. =P
