Chickens in Golden Gate Park

I went to Golden Gate Park with a friend earlier today. Golden Gate Park is huge, you can walk around exploring all day and never be bored. And that’s what we did. We ventured off the sidewalk down unpaved paths and hidden trails. We stumbled upon small ponds and larger lakes. We saw lots of squirrels and ducks, but the most surprising thing we encountered was a couple of chickens. I managed to get a blurry photo of one. You can see the feathers of the other one in the background if you look hard enough. Don’t strain yourself though. I don’t know how two chickens ended up in Golden Gate Park. It must have something to do with eggs, but it’s kind of amazing that they manage to live in park in a major US city. Golden Gate Park is very diverse in its wildlife. They have coyotes, foxes, raccoons, cranes, quails, hawks, owls, and now they have chickens. Pretty random and pretty awesome.

KFC Tuesday Special

There’s a KFC near my house that has a special promo every Tuesday where you can get two pieces of chicken for $1.49. That’s right, one dollar and forty-nine cents gets you a thigh and a drumstick in your choice of Original, Extra Crispy, or Grilled. Get the Extra Crispy. Always get the Extra Crispy. But seriously, how can they sell two pieces of chicken for $1.49 and make a profit? That’s less than seventy-five cents for a piece of chicken. Where are they getting these chickens from? I’m not sure if I want to know the answer, but I know I can’t stop eating it. It’s too good of a deal for decent fast food. I’m not ashamed to admit that I know that two orders of the KFC Tuesday Special costs exactly $3.24 after tax. Sometimes I’ll even bring exact change. If I’m going to be frugal, I might as well go all out.

Poultry Day

March 19th is Poultry Day, a day to celebrate poultries. A poultry is a type of bird that humans domesticated for their eggs, feathers, or meat. This includes chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, quails, and a bunch of other ones I’m too lazy to list. I don’t know how to celebrate Poultry Day. Am I supposed to help a chicken cross the road? Am I supposed to find a pond and feed the ducks? Am I supposed to cook a turkey dinner? Should I dress up like Quailman? Or salute Colonel Sanders? These are the things that nobody tells you about Poultry Day. I know lots of things about poultry (like chicken farts smell fowl), but I don’t know anything about Poultry Day customs or traditions. And that’s a shame because this seems like a really important holiday.

Popcorn Chicken

Popcorn chicken are bite-sized pieces of chicken that are deep-fried. They make a mediocre meal but a significant snack. It’s probably made of all the rejected pieces of chicken that weren’t good enough to be served, but the taste is all that matters. Who doesn’t like fried chicken? Especially when they are bite-sized and boneless? You pop one after another into your mouth and enjoy them… until they get cold and gross and you ask yourself why you bought Popcorn Chicken. It’s kind of a fucking oxymoron, it doesn’t even make sense. It always seems like a good idea until you order them, then you start to regret your decision pretty quickly. I first experienced popcorn chicken at KFC, and they’ve since caught on and I’ve seen them on a few different restaurant menus. They are usually listed as an appetizer, but you shouldn’t have any qualms about ordering them as your entrée. Popcorn chicken: because bones are so yesterday.

Pho

Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup and one of the most delicious things in the world. Pho is usually broth with rice noodles, herbs, and meat (typically beef or chicken). Lots of places also offer onions, jalapenos, bean sprouts, basil, lemons or limes to garnish your pho. Feel free to add Sriracha and other sauces too. Pho is an amazing dish, but it’s best experienced when you have a cold or a hangover. Pho might be the best remedy for a hangover. In fact, sometimes I intentionally get a hangover just so I have an excuse to get pho. And it’s always worth it.

Chicken Noodle Soup

It sucks being sick with a cold or flu. You have a fever, you have chills, maybe your nose is stuffed or runny. You just want to stay tucked in bed all day. You have to force yourself to drink hot tea, orange juice, and lots of fluids. The only good part of being sick is eating chicken noodle soup. It could be canned, it could be homemade, it doesn’t matter. You just want chicken noodle soup. It warms you up and makes you feel better if only for a moment. I feel bad for vegetarians with colds, because orange juice isn’t quite as satisfying.
