Chickened Out

Here chickie, chickie, chickie...

It's that time of year again. Time where people go crazy gnawing on some poor little chicken's wings watching big men in tights run around chasing and crashing into each other. Yes, SuperBowl time. And this also means that it's wing cooking time! UGH. We sell so many that we have to cook wings overnight to keep up with it all! And this year it was my turn, again.
From 12am-730am I cooked and fried and fried and cooked. By 2am I'd already fried 520lbs of wings. By 3/330am the Starbucks Double Shot, and 2 Frappucinos started wearing off(but they definitely got me through!!) and my wrists and arms started to give way.
Surprisingly, the night went by fast, and by the end we'd cooked a total of over 1,300lbs of wings!!!! That's about 235 5lb buckets!!
But I was able to witness to my co-worker for about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes that night!! I was able to give him the plan of salvation briefly along with covering the Bible from Genesis to Revelations! Ha! He was very attentive. :) So although I'd rather of not lost a night's sleep while having to cook wings, I was glad that I was able to be a witness. I guess all things DO work together for good...according to HIS purpose!
And now, I'd rather not see another chicken wing for a very, very long time!
