Taco Time


By: Connor Lenahan

It’s been far too long since I wrote an article about food. I figured that while I sit here, hungry as all creation, I should write a small love letter to Chipotle. Who among college students doesn’t love Chipotle? People who are wrong, that’s who. I did not get to experience Chipotle for the first time until earlier this year. Since that fateful day I have slowly fallen into madness induced by way of their amazing food. Seriously, the tacos there are delicious enough that they could convince me to rob multiple banks and I would listen. Don’t overthink why there would be talking tacos, just agree with me that they would persuade with tastiness.

I think it was the commercial that Chipotle put out in late 2013 that got my attention. It’s their now famous Scarecrow spot featuring Fiona Apple covering “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka. Tacos and Fiona, my love? You have earned my patronage.

I have gone to Chipotle more times in recent memory than I’d like to admit. It’s an absurd amount of times. However, those that know the magic that is the food of Chipotle – especially the guacamole – will understand my struggle-that-isn’t-a-struggle.

Thank you Chipotle for making my life full. And hopefully in a few hours by belly full as well. I love you.
