But, come Saturday.....
You trek on out to the middle of nowhere. Down isolated country roads twenty miles from
You travel past other kids, just waking up, and not quite ready to meet the day. You feel their pain when

Then it's lunch at Fuddrucker's in the mall. It's really hard to eat and smile with a mouth full of a 1/2 pounder!
