When Angel Pagan stole a base in Game 2 of the World Series, Taco Bell launched into their “Steal a Base, Steal A Taco” promotion. My son, a junk food lover at heart, did a victory lap around the couch. Thanks to Taco Bell’s commercial in practically every break on Game 3 and Game 4, my son has it committed to memory that today from 2-6pm, he can get a free Doritos Locos taco. Well played, Taco Bell, well played.
I hadn’t seriously considered going to Taco Bell today for my free taco. First of all, it’s a taco. Aren’t tacos like 99 cents? I imagine that all I’ll see the entire graduating class of our local high school at Taco Bell. Along with everyone who thinks a free taco is the best.thing.ever.
But then I found out that Angel Pagan will be passing out those tasty treats at the Redwood City Taco Bell on El Camino. Considering Pagan is the latest tasty treat for all us suburban moms to drool over, I expect that location to be filled with more women. Perhaps they’ll get a babysitter and make a Mom’s Day Out of it. Admit it, ladies… we were more interested in the game when Angel Pagan was up to bat than at any other time.
I’m tempted to drive up to Redwood City just to see the site. I can see it now… Hundreds of moms swarm Pagan. Who cares about the taco, when you can get the whole enchilada!
