Day 15 – A Day of Temporary Sadness

Let’s see, what are we on now – ah, Day 15. If the days are running together now, I can only imagine what Day 156 will be.

At any rate, it’s time for a little confession, and I hope you’ll understand.  As much as I want to continue Every Day with Chick-fil-A in actuality, I will have to take a brief respite as I fly to Uganda on Monday for a Man Up & Go missions trip.  Now granted, if Chick-fil-A would get its act together and open on a franchise in downtown Kampala, I can assure you the Ugandans would EAT IT UP, quite literally. Mr. Cathy – if you’re listening – I will personally help you open up the first international Chick-fil-A franchise in the capital city of Uganda, as soon as you’re ready. I got connections.  😉

That being said, I’m afraid today was my last Chick-fil-A meal for at least a couple of weeks.  I am really quite sad about it, truthfully.

Good thing I had Evan to wait on me. ^^^ Dustin was there, Ryan was there, and some of the other folks too. What’s great about going every day is that you can’t help but get to know the peeps making the food.  I find that to be comforting, like an old favorite t-shirt or a Chicago Bears victory. Okay, so I’m not comfortable very often.  But knowing the staff at my local Chick-fil-A makes up for the lack of Bears’ wins. You can’t put a price tag on that.  (Of course, I don’t have a price tag on any meal from Chick-fil-A these days…the analogy would’ve worked better if I was actually paying for them.)

But hey, I am giving them promotion.  I mean, my mom, my dad, even my wife sometimes, they all read this blog, so, in essence, FREE advertising Chick-fil-A.  In true Bubba Watson flavor, “You’re welcome.”

My send off meal today? Well, I’ll let the picture speak for itself.

No really, the picture obviously speaks for itself.

Now I’m trying to employ the services of a couple of other VIPers to take my place while I’m gone, so stay tuned. But either way, home is where the heart is, and my heart will always be in a Chick-fil-A drive-thru flashing a VIP Black Card. See you in a couple of weeks, Chick-fil-A, Lord willing.
