I'm sorry Chick-Fil-A

Growing up in the North, I had no clue what Chick-Fil-A was. When I moved to Memphis, I still didn't know what it was.  I thought "who wants to just eat chicken... how good can it be."  Well, I was wrong, once "C" had me try Chick, I was hooked.  I haven't eaten any other fast food since my first bite of that delicious chicken. 

So now, I must formally apologize to Chick-Fil-A.  I'm so sorry, I didn't mean for it to happen.  It didn't mean anything and it wasn't nearly as good as you! I promise it will Never happen again!!  I was walking through the food court, on my way to you and out of the corner of my eye, the little Asian man forked  a piece of bourbon chicken and said "you come here and try bourbon chicken?!"  I wasn't sure if he was asking or demanding... so I went over and took the bite... Ooohhh the sweet goodness of bourbon chicken danced across my tongue when a little Asian woman interrupted my bliss "you want rice?!" "Sure" I say still partially seduced by the chicken... WHAT!!! How did that happen, why do I have a plate full of fried rice, bourbon chicken and an egg roll?  Ohhh the shame, I've cheated on my perfect Chick-Fil-A.  After I paid, I had to do the walk of shame though the food court to find a seat... As I made my way, I felt eyes of judgement upon me.  Everybody ( I swear, I was literally the only person NOT eating Chick in the entire food court) was feasting on their golden Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, fries and shakes... I looked down at my tray and knew I was an outcast.  For a moment, I felt like a new kid trying to make their though a school cafeteria.  I wasn't sure where to sit, because clearly I wasn't a cool kid.  I found a spot in the corner... my bourbon chick was good, but not as good as that first sample bite.  I'm not sure if it was the guilt or just that my "system" wasn't used to the new food but a few hours later Chick-Fil-A got its revenge on me!!!

  1. Oh Chick-Fil-A is greatness. But no one can live on chicken sandwiches alone, everyone once and awhile you are allowed to have something different.

  2. Haha! Good one! Yup, Chic-fil-A is the bomb!

  3. They are asking AND demanding you at the same time to try their chicken! And I swear they must sprinkle fairy dust on the sample bites because it's just never as good once you sit down with it! The trick is to avoid eye contact. If you make eye contact with them they will lure you in with their promises of yummy bourbon chicken and egg rolly heaven only to leave you feeling alone with whatever it is they but on your plate.

    Girl, this made me laugh, laugh, laugh. Steer clear of the Asian food at the mall! Hope you had a great day!

  4. I LOVE Chick-fil-a. Their sweet tea is awesome.
