Finally...A Bib That Is Both Functional And Accurate

I don't think I've ever eaten a meal that hasn't found its way to my chest. I've tried everything; extending my neck further over the plate, watching the food on my fork depart my plate and travel to my mouth and have even tried to shake the culprits that jump on my shirt from the fork before they even have a chance to dance on my ample chest area. It never works.

Eddie always tells me I should be wearing a bib; I think I might have to agree. The problem is I want something stylish, that I can coordinate with my outfits, or maybe something clear that won't be obvious to fellow diners. But as you might imagine, there aren't many bibs available for adults.

Today we went to
Culver’s and Eddie saw this bib hanging near the condiments area and decided that I just had to have it. If you've never been to Culver's, you are truly missing out. The full name of the restaurant is Culver's ButterBurgers & Frozen Custard. I don't know if they actually put butter on their burgers, but whatever they do, it's the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. They only have locations in seventeen states, so if there is one near you, I suggest you get your Fatty McButterpants over there to try 'em out.

We were in South Dakota when we got "Culverized" and tomorrow we hit our very favorite ribs place in all the nation,
Space Aliens Grill and Bar in Fargo, North Dakota. We've been doing so well with making meals in the truck that Eddie thought it was time for a break and figured we'd hit two of our favorites while we were up here.

And the bib? I'm keeping it. How could I not wear something that says, "I'm as cute as a Butter Burger is delicious."

Because I am, you know.


all things bradbury said... gratifying to know that i'm not the only one who has this has gotten so bad that i have taken to just telling people that i intend to suck my shirt later for a little snack....god, seeing that in print makes me realize how gross that would don't know if us full-figured gals have big ta ta's coz we feed them, or if we feed them coz they're big...either way it seems a vicious circle....but you're right....the bib is cute and you should wear it often.....ya'll be safe up there in the cold....

Great shot! You should send that to corporate headquarters - maybe you can become the butter burger mascot!

Count me in too as one who always wears a little bit of everything I eat. My daughters tell me it's because I have this huge shelf there -out front -and I can't get my spoon or fork up beyond it! (That's also another reason I like to wear the big bibbed butcher aprons when I cook and then, I just leave it one when I sit down to eat. Gives a lot of good coverage for those big droppings all over the front of me that way. That, and I'm seriously considering changing my name to Grace.
