Department of Fried Chicken

Hello, and welcome to my blog.  I said welcome to my blog!

Sometimes I ponder the big issues in life: who killed J.R. and why do people (myself included) like fried chicken so much? I really do like it, but it's not just that I like it so much.  I think about it constantly.  Sometimes I get in trouble at work because I can't finish tasks.  For instance, recently my supervisor asked me why I still hadn't made a copy of a report she wanted after 6 weeks.  I said I had been too busy stacking some paperclip boxes she had asked me to organize.  But the truth was that I had been thinking so much about fried chicken I didn't have time for anything else.

When it comes to fried chicken, I think about lots of things, but I often think about what's the best fried chicken?  Also, if I went to a place I liked, I think was it really as good as I thought it was?

The first time I went to Root and Bone, the new but already famous southern food joint, I thought the fried chicken was incredible. The second time I went I thought it was pretty good but not great.  Well, what is it?  Turns out an acclaimed critic agrees with me, citing Root and Bone's fried chicken as "inconsistent."

Thanks for stopping by.
