It was when I walked into the local Burger King for some lunch that I saw Ben and Phylicia sitting in a booth with a smile on their faces and a Whopper in their hands while some guy takes their picture three times with a camera which made me walk up to those two and ask, "Is this a private party or could one more join in?"

That was when Ben slapped his hand on his forehead and said, "I do not believe this! Tell me, Scott! Don't you have anything better to do?", which made me raise my hands and say, "Whoa! Take it easy, Ben! I just came in here for some lunch and saw you and Phylicia having your picture taken with a Whopper in your hands. I just got curious, That's all."

"Which happens to be understandable, Scott. You see, Burger King asked us to be part of their marketing campaign and we said 'yes' to the idea.", said Phylicia while she was looking at me with this big smile on her face and a gentle hand on top of mine. "Speaking of lunch, why don't you join us since you're here anyway?"

And when Ben looked at Phylicia like he was about to ask, "Are you nuts?", I gave the invitation some thought and said, "Okay.", before I sat down next to Phylicia and chowed down on that Whopper combo like there was no tomorrow.

As for Ben, that poor lug just grabbed his jacket and stomped right out of there without so much as a single 'goodbye' to his friends.

However, when I walked over to his house to check on him, I saw Ben in the backyard slamming his fists into a punching bag with my name and face right on the thing.
