I forgot to pack my lunch for my internship today. Sucks. But that’s okay, I say to myself. I’ll stop at sev (7-11, for you none Philadelphians/Temple kids) and buy something cheap.
As I’m watching the woman ring up my food, I’m slowly regretting everything.
Pork Roll w/Cheese = $2.99; 7-Select Kettle Cooked Chips = $0.99; Fudge Brownie = $1.19; Lipton Brisk Pink Lemonade = $0.99
WTF? First of all, ew. None of that is going to help me lose the 10 lbs. I put on over the summer. Second, ew. None of that is even yummy junk food (i.e. I should have just gone with $3.00 cheese fries). Third, I just spent almost $7 on the crappiest lunch ever.
So, from today forward, I’ll be scouting out all the trucks, restaurants, shops, and cafes for the best quick, cheap, and maybe a few healthy lunches in center city (closest to Philly Mag, at least). Wish me luck.
