For want of a burrito the highway was lost.

Must have been one of those giant ones from Muchas Gracias.

And why am I reminded of a scene from Friday (or was it Next Friday)?

The culprit:

"Oh, Baxter, you are my little gentleman. I'll take you to foggy London town 'cause you are my little gentleman. Wow, this burrito is delicious, but it is filling."

when he reached for his burrito. . .

Aren't there rules against doing that while driving?

He tried to correct his line of travel and lost control, causing the load to shift and the truck and trailer to overturn

How many more Burritos must die????

Muchos Gracias is the best we have in our Coastal Area.

The Oregon Trail Burrito is a local fave.

I love to pour at least 4 red hot sauces on mine so it is a pull over watch the ocean and enjoy meal before getting back to driving.

The Breakfest burrito is awesome too but I am not a big fan of eggs.

Good if we are coming home from early in the a.m. from a long evening out.

Uh, yeah. It’s totally coming at some point — a ban on eating while driving. I can see OR or WA starting it, or maybe VT will lead the way on this new legislation against DWE.

Also for $4.30 to have a whole home flavored hearty meal in an Oregon Trail Burrito or Mucho Gracias Breakfest Burrito I would rather not eat if Mc Donalds or other chain fast food Burrito was my only choice.

I went out of town to Easter Oregon last week and thought hmm I will grab a taco at Taco Time.

Blech it was like eating dog food taco mix.

So I fasted for the rest of the trip untill I got back to the coast and picked up an Oregon Trail Burrito the next morning.

Yeah, Muchas is one of my occasional guilty pleasures. One of them breakfast burritos will tide you over for nearly the entire day. :)

My x-husband crashed grabbing for a rolling watermelon.

It would be interesting to find out the reason (beyond stupidity) for various crashes.

Was it in his vehicle or along side the road when he grabbed for it? ;-)

That is akin to saying the gun shot someone.

Are there any people left who are able to accept the consequences of their actions? Even small children reach the point of responsibility wherein they change from "my homework got lost" to "I lost my homework".

We have a Muchas Gracias here in Grants Pass (just South of Wolf Creek) I wonder if it’s owned by the same people?

HAHA!

As he tells it, it was rolling off of the seat. I'm sure that alcohol was also involved. If he was breathing, alcohol was involved.
