I Feel Like Chicken Tonight!

My piece today for Godly Daddy ...

You might have heard about this teeny tiny brouhaha about Chick-fil-A and gay marriage advocates following the restaurant president’s backing of Biblical marriage. It was in a few papers.

Almost immediately certain segments of the political left-wing and national media (sorry for repeating myself) went bonkers climbing over each other to condemn Dan Cathy as a hatemonger.

In response, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee organized Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day for today, August 1, as a great day for a chicken sandwich in support of the fast-food chain.

Going to Chick-fil-A is already one of our habits once, twice, even three times a week, especially during the hot summer months. If it’s 110 degrees then we’d rather our mini Cooper play inside, and if we get some chicken that’s just a nice bonus.

If you are taking part and bringing your kids to Chick-fil-A Wednesday and otherwise haven’t, then I’ll let you know about the four kinds of kids in the playground at Chick-fil-A:

1. Gymnasts – These show-offs like to straddle the slide and ignore signs that say not to climb on the nets around the equipment.

2. Entertainment Directors – They organize all the kids to play games, which usually involve someone being “it” and the other kids running and climbing around like their six–count of delicious chicken nuggets contained Mexican jumping beans.

3. Big Kids Too Old For This – Let’s just say that if you can do algebra and you’re not a whiz kid genius, you probably should just stay out and let the littler ones enjoy.

4. Eager Beavers – Like our mini Cooper, they just want to play with the other kids. They don’t eve have to play with him. Cooper goes running when we go inside just so he can inhale the aura of their awesomeness as another young person.

No matter why you’re at Chick-fil-A today, I think we can all agree that this is the South, and it’s never a bad thing to “Eat Mor Chikin!”
