11 Things You Know To Be True If You're Obsessed With Chick-fil-A

11 Things You Know To Be True If You're Obsessed With Chick-fil-A

My pleasure.

A few nights ago, I walked into my college dorm proudly holding a bag of Chick-fil-A. In the moment, I felt as if my hair was blowing in the wind while some sensual scents of chicken nuggets wafted around me. This vision was quickly interrupted when some dude approached me saying, "Wow, Sam, Chick-fil-A three times in two days?!" While his tone suggested disgust, I know he meant it as a compliment. If it had been any other fast food chain, I would have felt a deep sense of shame and embarrassment. However, because it was Chick-fil-A, I look back on that interaction and smile knowing that was most likely the peak of my life. If you can relate to that story, you are most likely a Chick-fil-A addict as well and you will know these 11 things to be true.

1. You crave Chick-fil-A at all times.

Obvious from the anecdote above, the "I ate that yesterday" argument kind of flies out the window when it comes to Chick-fil-A. In fact, I would even say that the "I ate that earlier today" argument isn't valid in the case of Chick-fil-A.

2. You've driven to Chick-fil-A on a Sunday and contemplated the meaning of life.

If you've ever pulled into a Chick-fil-A parking lot on a Sunday, you know rejection. You know heartbreak. The Chick-fil-A near my house is conveniently located right next to a Culver's which typically gets my business on these tragic days.

3. You've wondered if the workers there are real human beings.

Fast food workers typically make it pretty clear that they hate their life, and they hate you even more for making them do any sort of work at all. However, Chick-fil-A is notorious for its outstanding customer service; their workers are just simply a different breed. There are only three possible rationales for how happy the Chick-fil-A workers are. 1) They're actually robots programmed to respond "My pleasure" to any statement whatsoever even if that's not a fitting response, 2) they're wearing some sort of electric collar that ever so slightly electrocutes them when they fail to respond with "My pleasure," or 3.) they're on drugs.

4. You've debated getting Cheerios at the sauce station just because of how cute they look.

If you've been to Chick-fill-A a single time, you are familiar with their impressive condiments display. Sometimes I just stare at it in awe. Not only is every single packet perfectly lined up (clearly by one of the robot employees), but there are little tiny cups of Cheerios for babies. Well played, Chick-fil-A, well played.

5. Speaking of sauces, you dream about Chick-fil-A sauce.

I'm not entirely sure what Chick-fil-A sauce is. I'm not sure anyone really knows. All I know is that it is delicious, and I usually request at least four or five packs. I would bathe in it if I could.

6. You didn't realize you could love Chick-fil-A more, and then they came out with breakfast.

Well, to be honest, all they did was put their chicken nuggets on little tiny biscuit buns, but that's all they needed to do. The chicken minis are out of this world as are the other breakfast options. Chick-fil-A, you motivate me to wake up before 10:30.

7. The lemonade is your go-to drink at Chick-fil-A.

I'm not a huge fan of lemonade typically, but in the world of Chick-fil-A, this is obviously irrelevant. They must sprinkle just the slightest amount of crack cocaine into that lemon water sugar mix because it is aggressively delicious.

8. If you don't get the lemonade, you get a milkshake.

The milkshakes at Chick-fil-A are just another menu item that make me smile. I would like to inform you all that it was at this point in the article that I stopped writing and drove to Chick-fil-A. I commend you if you've made it this far without having to stop and address your craving.

9. Chick-fil-A is the only time you eat waffle fries, and you love that.

I'm honestly not surprised Chick-fil-A has waffle fries. They are better than any other fast food chain so why would they have the same fries as those peasants? The waffle fries just make them even more unique.

You'll occasionally get one or two waffle fries that cannot really be considered a waffle; its more of the butt of a potato. Nevertheless, you forgive Chick-fil-A for this minor slip up and give it to that one person notorious for liking weird things.

10. You've been waiting this entire article for me to mention the chicken.

OK, let's talk about it. Whether you get the nuggets, the strips or the sandwich, the chicken at Chick-fil-A is a gift from God. It simply never disappoints. Unlike other fast food chains, you also never have to worry about that moment of discomfort and confusion where you wonder what could have possibly been so chewy.

11. You've said this on numerous different occasions: "You've never had Chick-fil-A?! We must go right now."

If you've ever had this conversation, you know how urgent it is that you get that poor soul to the nearest Chick-fil-A. I mean, its essentially the same as charity work. Everyone deserves to experience the goodness of Chick-fil-A, and we are all responsible for helping those less fortunate that have yet to try it.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the Chick-fil-A that you are currently eating or will be eating in the near future.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Sweet Potatoes Are The Most Underrated Vegetable Of All Time

Everything you need to know about the pieces of edible gold we call "sweet potatoes" and why they will always perish over any plain old potato.


The potato. The heart of the American food industry. A versatile vegetable crop soaked in grease that brings us some of our favorite appetizers and sides. From french fries, to curly fries, to tater tots, to baked potatoes, to hash browns, this hallowed vegetable has become the Johnny Depp of the vegetable family. Now, we are all aware that the configurations of potatoes are limitless, but we commonly disregard the potato's delicious and neglected brother: the sweet potato. I, a credible food connoisseur and highly experienced eater, am here to tell you why you are missing out on a world of flavor if you choose to dismiss the beloved sweet potato and its many entities.

Let me first start this tirade by proving to you my credibility...I, too, once believed that regular french fries were better than sweet potato fries. I scoffed at the idea of choosing those ridiculous orange sticks over my tried-and-true plain boys. I could not be convinced that any sweetness should impede on my savory snacks.

These were dark times.

It was not until a mere month ago that my mind was changed forever.

It was a sunny (scary) Sunday morning, and my pounding head led me on a mission to indulge myself in the finest breakfast foods. I entered my favorite breakfast diner, Angelo's, and waited anxiously for my waiter to stroll over. She filled our water cups and asked if we wanted to start with any appetizers. Before my stingy self could even decline the offer, my best friend ordered a round of sweet potato fries for the table and the waiter scurried away. I stared blankly at her for a solid minute. I could not wrap my head around the concept of munching on sweet potato fries at 8 in the morning. She just stared back and said, "Trust me." Suddenly, a tray of blood orange sticks and a mysterious tan sauce appeared in front of my face. As much as I wanted to ponder the morality of this decision, the hunger began to take over, and I shoved one of the fries into my mouth.

In an instant, it was as if time and space had lost all meaning. When my teeth hit the fry, the perfectly crusted outer shell crunched softly making a sound much like your foot crushing a dried leaf. The now exposed inside of the fry was the perfect blend of mush and warmth that felt like your mouth was receiving a hug. The flavor...unbelievable. It didn't take me long to realize that this wasn't a fry — this was a culinary experience. This fry single-handedly blew the roof off of any predisposed ideas I had about American cuisine.

I am well aware that my fry experience cannot be simulated again by any average food-goer, but I challenge you, the reader of this article, to get out there and enjoy a sweet potato in any form. Stray from your basic fries or tater tots and dabble in a sweet treat which will undoubtedly bring you flavorful satisfaction.
