Dear Chick-fil-A,

May 21, 2008 at 11:22 am (Uncategorized) ()

I had heard that you recently updated your menu.  I thought oh boy, that should be fun!  I went today to grab a quick sandwich before a doctor’s appt.  I was really looking forward to my Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwich – you know the one – the tasty chicken salad between two slices of wheat bread that are pressed flately together & warming inside your Chick-fil-A thermal bags. 

As I looked up at the menu, I thought to myself – oh that’s a new menu board … wait, no that’s the new menu!  I glance through to find the Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwich – you know the one – the tasty chicken salad between two slices of wheat bread that are pressed flately together & warming inside your Chick-fil-A thermal bags. 

So I then asked the stupid question with the obvious answer … “did your Chicken Salad Sandwich change?”.  The 12-year old cashier told me that it’s the same Chicken Salad but they’ve added lettuce & put it on a thicker bread b/c the other one got flat & mushy.  I liked flat & mushy … it was easy to eat in the car & it tasty so yummy!  I smiled at the 12-year old and said, “ok, I’ll give it a shot”. 

She then handed me my new Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwich with a big old piece of Green Leaf Lettuce inside of a clear clamshell package (which as your online press release states that’s to resemble packaging more typical of high-end deli than a fast-food restaurant). 

Would you please tell Truett that I prefer the old Chicken Salad Sandwich … that I like my flat, mushy sandwich in the thermal foil bag b/c I came to Chick-fil-A (a fast food restaurant & not a high-end deli).  The new one’s pretty good (after removing that Green Leaf Lettuce, but it falls apart too easily & I have to peel the bark back because who really like’s the end stuff anyways?

Very Sincerely,

it’s come to this …

And PS – No offense towards your 12-year old cashiers.  They are always more together than any other adult at your competition!

Temporarily inconclusive

May 20, 2008 at 4:00 pm (Uncategorized)

Well I got sick of being sick, so I decided to head to the doctor.  She said it looks like strep, but the “rapid strep test” was negative & they’re sending out the other test to the lab – thus the title that we’re “temporarily inconclusive”. 

BUT because of the Memorial Holiday, the office is closed Friday & Monday which means no results until T-U-E-S-D-A-Y!  As in one week from today!!!!  She gave me a perspcription for some medicine just in case I start getting a fever or considerably worse, but she’d prefer I stay off as long as possible in case it’s not strep!

So what in the world does that mean!?!?!  Basically (as I thought), for now anyways, I paid $25 to be told I have a sore throat – UGH!!! 

The silver lining …

ME:  “So what do I do between now & then?”

Doc:  “Continue with your salt water, cough drops & sprays … and you have my permission to drink as many Smoothies & Shakes as you want because they’ll be little icepacks for your throat”

That was almost worth the $25 right there!

What to do

May 20, 2008 at 7:10 am (Uncategorized)

I have a sore throat.  Some coughing, but that’s just because my throat is sore & dry.  My “Approved Over-the-Counter Medication for Obstetrical Patients” says:

“May use Cepacol or other cough drops, as well as Chloraseptic and salt water gargles (yuck).  If persists, especially with fever, may need to come in for a throat culture”.

Well I have no other symptoms, but my throat is incredibly uncomfortable.  I really don’t want to pay a $25 co-pay to be told I have a sore throat!!  I’ve only had strep once in my life & I definitely had more symptoms than just a sore throat.  But sprays & salt water are silly b/c they feel great while you’re spraying, but a few minutes after that numbing sensation stops it hurts again.

It’s been going on since Friday.  Should I go to the doctor – oh how I hate going to the doctor??

The exchange

May 19, 2008 at 2:13 pm (Uncategorized)

Last week I did it.  I officially handed in my laptop & wrapped up my “short term/part time” job that was originally supposed to end in December, then in March, then in April … and on May 12th – it finally ended!  I feel like a free woman.  A broke free woman, but free non the less!

Yee haw

May 15, 2008 at 9:47 am (2year olds, family, pony rides, rodeo)

I’m not sure which one is more strange (or even disturbing) to me yet … 1) that I attended my first rodeo a few weeks ago or 2) that one actually comes to the town I live in!!!  Needless to say, it was rather “interesting” with plenty of sights.  My eyes just stayed on the cute little 2 year old cowboy!

He was in awe of what he saw …

But, to him, this was the best part & made every $ of that expensive entrance ticket worth it …

On top of the fridge …

May 8, 2008 at 2:35 pm (2year olds)

We currently have a gun, a horse, a replica Stevie Ray Vaughn hat, a pair of cowboy boots, a very loud & annoying motorcyle and a broom!!! 

Why?!?!  Because this is what happens to toys that have to be taken up after a certain little 2 year old can’t listen!! 

It’s been that kind of week!!

He may have a point

May 7, 2008 at 9:58 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

Pep always gives me a hard time about leaving my shoes laying around the house … I’ve always disagreed.

However since this picture was not taken in my closet, but rather on the front steps after rounding up my shoes for the week … he may have a point!
