I think we can all come up with a few thoughts on this topic -- we all have to eat and why not ruminate pleasantly on some of our favourite foods once in awhile?
Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi and me as we whip up our choicest poetic offerings on this topic. You can leave your poem in the comments, or post on your own blog. If you do the latter, please leave a comment so we can find you and drool over your words.
Use the topic, or choose another. The idea is to work our brains and have fun.
Long, long ago, when I was in my late teens and attending university, I spent one summer break working at a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. First I learned how to bread the chicken and how to arrange it neatly to drain after deep-frying, then moved on to making fries and assembling orders, then to making coleslaw in a gigantic food chopper, then to working the cash. It was a fine education, my boss and co-workers were excellent to work with, and I remember that four months of my life quite fondly.
Staff were permitted to buy meals at half-price so I bet you think I'm going to say that my favourite lunch is KFC, right?
Nope. In all those four months I might have had chicken three or four times. I did, however, buy a tiny tub of Dixie coleslaw and a can of root beer every day to accompany my tuna/mayo sandwich brought from home.
And that's my favourite lunch -- then and now -- even though the coleslaw no longer tastes like it used to and my root beer is now sugar-free.
We people are odd, are we not? Of all the possibilities there are for lunch, and even though I ate this combination for months on end, I still like it a lot.
Could Have Saved More If I'd Ditched The Coleslaw And Root Beer Though
There was a young lady (that's me!)
Who packed chicken orders with glee
A bucket or snack pack
Whacked into a paper sack
With a smile as she took your mon-ey
But the young lady student was cheap
And rarely did KFC eat
She opted instead
For tuna mayo on bread
And financial surpluses did reap :)
Not my actual place of work, but all these restaurants look the same, don't they?
And now for some food-related funnies. (Source: icanhas.cheezburger.com)
Dear Son: If you're reading, this one's for you :)
Do you have KFC in your part of the world?
And what's YOUR favourite lunch? I hope you get to enjoy it soon.
