Guest #20....awwwww crap.

Got the first official duplicate today. It was only a matter of time. I'll post the picture later...I also just realized I threw the receipt away though I meant to keep it. Ah well...guess only the originals are being kept.

No major reason why this wasn't perfect (will there EVER be a 10/10?), but just a minor issue with each of the 3 parts. While it's rare, sometimes the Diet Coke doesn't taste 100% normal. Today was one of those days. The burger was all around great, but unfortunately the meat was off center and I ended up with 1-2 bites of bun leftover. Yes, I am docking points for that. Lastly, the fries were so close to perfect. They just needed to be cooked slightly longer to get a bit more crispy as they were a little soggy/mushy. As a whole, best In-N-Out trip in weeks, flavor wise.

Overall trip wise it was great as well. As slow, if not slower than last week. Slow however means less chances of interesting things to witness. So my only tidbit for the day is that I didn't make a point to go ahead of either of my co-workers. Good thing to, as had I done so I would have ended up with #63 which would have been a duplicate.

Any wagers on how many more visits until a duplicate happens?

So I'm not going to call these ratings out up top, but I really wanted to rate the burger and fries separately this time. The fries were some of the worst fries I've had at In-N-Out in a while. Of course that's relative to In-N-Out fries, so on a whole they were still good. Needed heavy seasoning. The burger on the other hand was mostly perfect, with the exception of one bite I took that tasted like just hamburger patty. Luckily it was just that one bit, but it was definitely strange.

Now, I have a few points of interest (strange how I've never come up with a consensus name to call these blurbs), but none that are really about observing specific people. First, this was the slowest I've seen this In-N-Out when I walked in. 4 empty tables, all but one stool was empty. Of course by the time I left it was business as usual. Second, I actually dumped my soda out and got it from another fountain cause it tasted so bad (I believe In-N-Out has 4 spouts for Diet Coke).

This makes 25 visits with 25 original numbers! As of tomorrow it will have been 4 months since starting this adventure. That means I visit In-N-Out roughly 6 times a month. Or once every 5 days. At this rate I would be able to complete the challenge in 1 more year. Mathematically though that is HIGHLY unlikely.

Go Bills! Yes I am a fan of the Buffalo Bills and today marks the start of the season while 3 days from now the Bills will start 1-0 after they squish the fish.

Guest #29...wait a minute!

This is the receipt that is technically a duplicate that I still don't know whether to count or not. It wasn't an actual meal, just some shakes. And remember, I don't plan on ever getting their shakes again (I'm sure some die hard In-N-Out shake fan will rant about that, but oh well).

Nothing especially good or bad about this burger. As always these days, no S&P on the french fries. The only "negative" on the burger would be that the meat was more to one side so I ended up having some leftover bun/tomato/lettuce/cheese/sauce.

No interesting side-note or observation today as it was quite possibly the most uneventful In-N-Out trip to date. However, stay tunes as I will have a special post just for the blog in the next couple of days.
