30 Days of Joy: Breaking the Rules

Brent Stoller's chicken biscuit from Chick-fil-a

Note: This article is the next step in my challenge to find joy in something — anything — every day for 30 days. Today’s entry is part 12.

I’m short on time, so I’ll keep this short.

Like, three-words short:

Chick-fil-a chicken biscuit.

That’s what gave me joy today.

When it comes to fast food breakfast entrees, it doesn’t get any better than this. (McDonald’s hash browns takes the title for best breakfast side item.)

What’s there not to like about it? It’s got a biscuit. It’s got fried chicken. It’s perfect.

This morning, my schedule — and my mood — were scrambled, meaning I needed to find a way to my happy place.

But ever since I got a bad cholesterol report a few years ago, my happy place can no longer live in a fast food drive thru.

This has made me sad.

Which is why today’s breaking of the rules tasted that much better.
