Week 29

FOREWORD: As you'll notice navigating from the end of last week to the beginning of this week, there was an arrival of noodle soups and popsicles...yep, I got sick. So something that always happens as I start to recover from an illness is intense cravings for foods I definitely should not eat (for a variety of reasons, but mostly because I'm just getting past sickness). So I'll make my formal and public apology to you, to myself, to whomever: I ate at KFC.

The first trip (last week, Saturday) was for mashed potatoes and gravy. It did the trick, soft, warm, but with some flavor. It got me feeling like I'd had this infection kicked. Then the craving came. Sometimes it's a burger and fries, sometimes it's pizza, but this time it was fried chicken. Not just any fried chicken either, Original Recipe. That magical blend of spices, that greasy skin. So I did it. To prove to myself that I was on the mend, that I was back. And I'm sorry. I'll be the first guy to talk about why we shouldn't eat at these places or support what they're doing to people, to local business, to high school kids that could work someplace awesome and fun instead.

Was it worth it? Heck no. The first bite or two brought back memories, but at this point I know too much. I know how these chickens are made, held, processed. It kinda grossed me out. I didn't finish the chicken (but darn if those biscuits aren't tasty).

Ok, back to it then....
