I was amused at Chick-fil-A tonight when the girl taking my order asked if I’d like a wheat bun for my Chick-fil-A sandwich. Because, obviously, the guy ordering a fried chicken sandwich, fries, and a Coke is really into making health-conscious food decisions tonight. Was it an attempt to assuage my guilt? Could I take some shred of dignity and self-satisfaction away from my fast food meal because I boldly proclaimed my preference for the wheat bun? Or were they merely trying to squeeze another 20 cents out of me?
Alas, it turns out I made the responsible decision and opted for the wheat. The sandwich wasn’t quite as tasty, but I took my stand for my health, right?
