Day 98. Today I came in during work while running an errand. I used the restroom first before getting food. There was a small line. The dine in beezyness is about 40 percent. I had my paper order taken. Today I am getting a yumburger, side order regular Jolli crispy fries, and an ube pearl for my co-worker Marivel. There are 2 days left until I end my streak on the 100th day. I wonder if there is a guiness world record for most consecutive store/restaurant visits and purchases. I also wonder if anybody in the world has done anything like what I have done at any Jollibee location. The days go by very fast. I am going to miss coming everyday consistently on a daily basis. Jollibee has pretty much been an integral part of my life for the past 3 months. A fellow blog reader Agaton would have loved to read “Day 365.” Wow imagine that.
My friend Josh says I have done everything that there was and is to do to prove myself as the self entitled Jollibee Kid; having tried all the menu items, fulfilling the Jollibee experience, staff and managerial acknowledgment, and many more. My co-worker Carolina and some others say I should write a book, just like the book and movie Julie and Julia which is adapted from two books: My Life in France, Child’s autobiography written with Alex Prud’homme, and a memoir by Julie Powell documenting online her daily experiences cooking each of the 524 recipes in Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, for one year. Even though my story will not be a year, I think I would call it, “Diary of a Jollibee Kid: The 100 day Jollibee Experience.” Speaking of the 100th day, people have been asking me what I will have on that day, if I am going to order every item or what. I do not think I can eat every item on the menu. I would need help to do that. I really do not know what I will eat. My favorite is the breakfast joys but I cannot eat the rice and I would have to go in the morning. I think since I am giving up my streak I should allow myself to eat rice again but I think I will still try to go without rice until Easter to make myself proud.
Happy Birthday to my former co-worker Yuji! Hope he has a Jolli-abulous one!
