Joyful! A Novel 1.4

The doctor’s appointment was then, and this is now. Which, quite honestly, could be going better. The goddamn drive-thru at DeLuck’s Burger has been under construction for nearly a month. Usually, I’d go to another drive-thru, but for whatever reason, I’m craving a burger from this place, the home of the Golden Arch. A single golden arch, which according to the owners of DeLuck’s, is cleared from any trademark infringement. While waiting in line, sapid grease lingering in the air settled and danced on my taste buds. I couldn’t have been more thankful as it chased away the remnants of
