Every four to six months I get a craving for fried chicken. Usually it’s Popeye’s spicy chicken or extra crispy Kentucky Fried Chicken. Further feeding this recent craving was the arrival of KFC coupons in the mail. Since my husband had to work late this past Friday and I’d be on my own for dinner, I figured it would be a good time to give into my craving. As I pulled into the drive-thru, a small, still voice said “Get the grilled chicken,” but bad Diva shouted, “Get the ‘good’ stuff.” You can guess which voice I listened to.
Why is it that when you finally eat something you’ve been craving for a while, it doesn’t taste as good? That was the case as I chomped away on my extra crispy KFC chicken Friday night. Plus as soon as I finished eating my meal, my stomach started hurting. This always happens. The grease pays me back by upsetting my stomach.
I asked myself, “Why did you do this to yourself?” Each time I give into my fried chicken cravings, I get sick. I hope the next time, about six months from now, I’ll have the strength to say no. My stomach will thank me.
