Christmas Lights and Chick-fil-a Cows
Tonight our family went to a pretty neat walk through Christmas light display with some good friends of ours. Before we met them to head out to the lights we ate supper at the Chick-fil-a Dwarf House in town. (For those of you who don't know, a Dwarf House has a regular Chick-fil-a on one side and a full serve restaurant on the other.) After eating, and on the way to meet our friends, this is the conversation that occurred between myself, my 7 year old son Jace, and my 3 year old daughter Sophie:

Jace: Why do the Chick-fil-a cows say "Eat more chicken"?

Me: Because most fast food restaurants serve things like hamburgers. You know what hamburgers are made of?

Jace: Cows.

Me: Yep. So the cows want us to eat more chicken because then we aren't eating hamburgers.

Jace: I get it. So the cows want us to eat more chicken so we don't eat them.

Me: Yes.

Jace: What I don't get is why do they want us to eat more chicken? Why not some food besides chicken that is not hamburgers?

Me: Because the cows are advertising for Chick-fil-a and Chick-fil-a serves chicken sandwiches so they want us to eat Chick-fil-a food. I guess if they were just random cows that didn't want to get eaten they might mention other foods but since they are Chick-fil-a cows, they say "Eat more chicken." Regular cows could say "Eat more pigs" I guess.

Sophie: Pigs are not yummy!!


You can always count on entertaining conversations at our house.

I married my beautiful bride Katherine back in May of 1998. Since then, we have been blessed with 4 wonderful kids (three girls and a boy). We have lived here in Rome since 1993 when Katherine and I met as freshmen at Berry College. I teach Math and Science at one of the elementary schools here in town. Thanks for stopping by.
