March 5, 2013

When she heard the alarms, Bonnie awakened her husband Luke, 33, and her daughters, Aubrie, 12, and Lacy, 11.

What I'm about to say has the potential to incite controversy. Because of this, I have kept my opinion on this subject to myself for the most part, only telling those closest to me. But now, I think I'm equipped to handle any backlash and am ready to admit it in public. 
I don't think the McRib sandwich is that great … In fact, to me, it's kind of gross. 
From what I've heard, this is a very unpopular stance, but I just can't help it.
