It's #NationalFriedChickenDay!

Amanda picked up a chicken leg and tore off a huge bite.
“Mmmm, Sukie makes wonderful chicken!”
Morgan beamed at her.
“I like a woman with healthy appetites. None of this picking around at bits and pieces like some ladies!”
“Oh.” She put down her chicken. “I have to be careful not to overindulge.”
“Because I have a tendency to eat too much, and then…” She looked down at her plate.
“You don’t think there’s, well, too much of me?”
He stared at her, then wiped his mouth on the back of his hand.
“Come here, Mrs. Roberts. Right now.”
Amanda seemed startled at this change in course, but dutifully stood up and walked over to her husband’s chair.
He put his hands around her waist and yanked her into his lap.
“Morgan! What are you doing?”
“‘Too much’? Someone has been filling your head with bilge, lass.”

It's #NationalFriedChickenDay which I'm certain is a state holiday in Florida. This is the best time of year for it too, served with a side of coleslaw, hush puppies, and watermelon to cool you off after. Now, that's some good eating!
