Lets Make a Deal

My friend Lalaland wrote about Popeye’s Chicken on her blog today. It was like waving a red cape in front of a bull. I want some delicious fast food chicken SO MUCH right now I am willing to make a very generous offer. My first born child. All you have to do is open a Chick-fil-A franchise within 20 minutes of my house. The closest one right now is in Paramus. NEW JERSEY. 82.9 miles. Starting one in scenic Eastern Connecticut would be a guaranteed success, plus now you get the added bonus of one baby boy, guaranteed to have all his fingers, toes and limbs. No promises regarding his intelligence, good looks or future addiction to World of Warcraft. Deal’s only for the next hour, because by then I will have put on pants and made it to KFC, even if it’s a poor, poor substitute for the real thing.

    Well, damn. There’s a Chick-Fil-A on the NYU campus. I would’ve brought you a (cold) chicken sandwich and some waffle fries. Guess you’ll have to be happy with bread and cheese and assorted snacky things.

    Haha–weird, I had a fried chicken craving when pregnant with my firstborn. Our closest Chic-fil-a is 40 miles from here, so as a good ole southern girl, I miss it some kinda bad. I feel you.

    I tried eating those fried chicken strips from restaurants, and it’s just not the same. FYI: my husband said the McDonald’s new “southern style” chicken sandwich is a disgrace to all chicken sandwiches, so I wouldn’t try your luck there.

    I’m sorry, girl, for setting you off on a chicken quest. Hey, you can get Blue Bell freeze-packed and sent up north, surely they can do something like that here? I’ll put in a request. I’ll tell em send her some Chic-fil-A or the baby gets it!

    Mmmm Chicken. Can I mail it to ya?

  5. Chic-fil-A is one of the many reasons why I’ll probably never leave the South. But I’ve tasted the sweet nectar that is cheeseburgers and fries from In-N-Out, and I long for them like you do the chicken. And they have some clause in their contract that their restaurants can only be out west. No fair!

    dorothy- may I recommend “5 guys burgers and fries” if they have one near you. Not *quite* as good as In-N-Out, but damn close.

    Oh DottyZ, I too am hard core IN LUV with In-N-Out…OMG cheeseburger heaven on earth! Why do they hold out against the South?? Why? :(

    Oh Bebe, do the southern gals need to send you a Chic-fil-A care package?!

    I have never had this wonderful sounding Chick-Fil-A, is it really THAT good? how does one pronounce that? I personally crave Arby’s (after a night of drinking, not pregnancy) and the closest location is at least an hour away. BOO to New England fast food!

    Stacy, it’s pronounced Chick-fillay. Like fillet. Because the chicken is boneless. (My mom insists on a short A, but she’s a contrary one.) And yes, it is that delicious.
