Already two burgers in, Cleveland native John Benson loosened his belt a notch and told his family he’s got “room for one more” as he grabbed some hamburger buns.
“Maybe no bacon on this one though,” he said. “Okay, one piece but definitely no cheese. Hmmm…you know what? One slice of American cheese never hurt anybody. I’ll just eat a late dinner.”
Benson, who cooked a total of eight burgers for the four members of his family, will likely grab a patty from the fridge in 2-3 hours and eat it, plain, before proclaiming he’s finally full. That’ll quickly change about a half hour before dinner when he asks his wife “what’s on the menu” with a smile, as if he made a humorous remark of some sort.
