fried chicken thursday

If you ask anyone on my team, they’ll say that Thursday is their favorite day of the week. And you know why?

Because!!! They’d say incredulously. It’s FRIED. CHICKEN. THURSDAY! 

Every Thursday, five select graphic designers cram into a car and drive to get delicious Al’s Hot Chicken.

Now, you may say, isn’t it madness to have Fried Chicken Thursday? Shouldn’t it be Fried Chicken FRIDAY? The alliteration is so much better, after all.

Well, it once was Fried Chicken Friday. However, a team member long ago suggested moving the day from Friday to Thursday and the motion passed silently.

One time, we made the terrible error of trying Dave’s Hot Chicken. Perched on the corner a mere thirty steps from Al’s, this precocious chain decided to try and poach customers from Al’s. I insisted we not cheat on Al — after all, he’d always treated us well. Sure, he took a while, and parking is absolutely abominable, but changing one major part of Fried Chicken Thursday could’ve changed the entire routine for good. If we weren’t careful, we’d just stop getting fried chicken altogether and switch to something like smoothie bowls. Imagine the thought!

But I was overruled because, after all, I’m only a child. What do I know of loyalty? Or fried chicken?

But the guys got what was coming to them. Dave’s was of unspeakable quality. Listen — they don’t even butter their sandwich buns! The gall. Their chicken strips were a lot smaller, too, and don’t get me started on the fries.

No. Seasoning.

We vowed from that day forward to never again partake of Dave’s.

And we’ve been loyal to Al ever since.
