I have secrets.

I was raised Catholic, but I never attended confession. So here I am... I feel like I need to tell someone this.

I'm not sure if I'm proud, ashamed, or just confused. It's a difficult time in a girl's life...



Just today...

after work,

I came home and

I ate a Double Down.


I know, I know! I'm not that type of girl. I'm a bread lover, through and through! Since birth, I've been all about toast, leaving the crusts on, even balling up slices of bread and sucking on them! So why would I eat a sandwich with no buns, no bread, no biscuit?

Because it's new? Because it sounded delightful and horrifying all at the same time? Because I like pretending trying weird foods is an "experiment," and that makes me a "scientist"?

It's a sandwich from KFC, which should set off the alarm right away. But it's a sandwich without bread. It's a bacon and cheese sandwich with fried chicken masquerading as "bread."

And I ate it.

And I'm still alive.

And, while I'm not going to eat one every week,
or even once a month, it's not horrible.

I might even have fond memories of it already.


So now you know. I am that type of girl.

  3. Aaaaaah, so gross! Don't get me wrong, I love fried things; one of the judges on America's Best Dance Crew told one of the crews that their moves needed to be "crispier" and I fantasized about fried chicken for at least 20 minutes. But just looking at that pile of fried chicken, bacon, and cheese makes me feel greasy. Glad you survived.

  4. Oh my gosh! Your confession cracked me up! And it looks so good! Also, I mentioned you on my blog and I'm finally starting to tackle those questions I asked for from readers. Yeah, I'm bad like that...why the heck did it take me so long to answer questions I asked for? Ugh! Happy weekend!

  5. OMG!!! Great deep fried evil deliciousness! I'm in New Zealand and KFC are about to launch the Double Down here (I know, one hundred years later, right?) Soooo I am definitely going to have to try one. Or two. Maybe three (just to be absolutely sure that they really are evil :))
