Me: Can Mommy have a kiss? I don’t feel good.
Me: But why???
Evan: Because my kisses are dangerous!
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?
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!
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!
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??
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!
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 …
a 5 minute pony ride around a circle on a stick!
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!!
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!
