Public Service

Not only is it Free Slurpee Day -- 7/11, get it? -- but it's also Cow Appreciation Day.

This is how Chick-fil-A celebrates:

I was planning on writing something pithy, but I have brain-freeze from my free slurpee - yay. Thanks for the reminder.

As someone who is about to close on a house, I appreciate free food more than usual right now, and felt like sharing.

Plus, I should note that, in my humble opinion, Chick-fil-A is vastly superior to most of the fast food dreck that is out there. The only problem I have with it is that the founder is some kind of right-wing religious wackadoo.

I don't believe I've ever had Chick-fil-A. Not that I remember anyway. True story. I have seen the cows though. And I'm not a slurpee fan. I'm partial to grape sno-cones. Does this make me un-American? If I disappear, you'll know why.

You should get yourself to Chick-fil-A pronto. Get the waffle fries and the lemonade.

I wish I had been reading your blog in a more timely fashion. Zach could have scored me a free sandwhich:

is the founder really a religious wackadoo? I know they don't open on Sundays, but they've never spouted sermons at me or anything.

In about 10 years, Zach will hate you for posting pictures like that on the internet.

And here's some info about Chick-fil-A: http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2007/0723/080.html

You can draw your own conclusions.

okay, that's completely insane. But just from reading the article about chick-fil-a, I'm now very hungry for one of their sandwiches.

Also, the last time we ate there, we got kids meals and they came with books instead of toys. They were smaller versions of actual good books, not some chick-fil-a produced thing. They were by the guy who wrote "click-clack-moo" and were in the same series. One of them, "duck for president," was very funny.

I don't remember what my point was. Oh yeah, they might be crazy, but they make awesome sandwiches and kids meals. Books and chicken rule!
