Finally he pulled out onto the road and hit the accelerator harder than was necessary. Where to grab dinner? There was the one with the good noodles. No, he thought. Then she’ll make me eat the vegetables that come with it.

I love that they fry their chicken in peanut oil, making me feel slightly less guilty for eating fast food… but more importantly, what they stand for as a Christian organization.

But unlike Chicken Palace, employees at Chick-Fil-A are the best… and I’m pretty sure they don’t have SIC readers, either.
