Ramble of the Day
I always treat weekends as a couple of days full of opportunity to shake things up in very small ways. I find a lot of pleasure in small things, like going for a walk or eating something different.
It inspires me to ask a question: What’s a recent craving you’d like to satisfy at your earliest convenience?
I bring up weekends because that’s usually when I eat out or order in, and is frequently when I satisfy those cravings. For me, I’m remembering a recent conversation in the Cartilage Free Captain writers’ room about Popeyes, and I remembered the taste of the spicy chicken sandwich. I haven’t had it in a few months, which is pretty normal for me. That does mean, though, I’m probably due for one (per my internal system of rotating through my various food options).
Writing this is making me pretty hungry, though, so I’m going to have to wrap things up here.
tl;dr: What’s a recent food craving you’d like to satisfy at your earliest convenience? For me, it’s the Popeyes spicy chicken sandwich.
