Ten Days Of Dougie (day 2)
Fried Chicken, Cock Fights & GI Joe
July 5, 2021
Welcome to a very hot and humid Monday. I’m your host and this is Day 2 of the epic, dare I say vintage, Ten Days Of Dougie series. Can I make it for ten days straight? We’ll see, but for Day 2, I’m live, primed, and ready to get busy. So let’s skip the chit-chat and get straight to the infamous Magic Bag to find out what we’re talking about today. We reach into the bag and here’s what we got. We have Fried Chicken, Cock Fights, and GI Joe. Oy vey! Let’s do this.
Who doesn’t love fried chicken? It doesn’t matter if it’s from KFC, Bojangles, Nic’s Pic Kwik, or from the top of the stove, there is no such thing as bad fried chicken. It’s associated as a racial stereotype, but I don’t know anyone, of any race or culture, that doesn’t like or appreciate a plate full of hot chicken fresh up from the grease, with a side order of Taters and maybe some baked beans. That is some good stuff. And the best thing about chicken is that it’s just as good cold as it is hot. Anything left in that box from KFC and put in the fridge will make a great snack later on. There is no such a thing as bad fried chicken and it’s good for breakfast, dinner, lunch, late at night, or any time in-between. I wouldn’t mind a chicken leg right about now. That would be mighty satisfying. I guess I’ll settle for left-over lasagna though. And I’m moving on.
Speaking of chicken, when two roosters fight, it’s called a cockfight. That’s not what I was thinking of when I first heard the term “cockfight”, and I was curious as to how that’s supposed to work. I guess it’s like thumb-wrestling, but with a twist. But that’s not it and my hopes were quickly crushed. It’s just two chickens thrown into battle against each other for the enjoyment of some crazy-ass rednecks. I’m not judging, but it’s not for me and I think it’s kind of crazy and cruel. My original perception, that could be kind of fun, but having two animals inflict pain and damage upon each other, that’s just not cool in my book. Let’s wrap this up and move on.
He’s a real American Hero. ‘Nuff said!
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions, feel free to drop me a line. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 3. Be good.
