We’ve been having issues with our air conditioners. In fact we had three different repair men here last week! The last one came Friday evening. Friday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A. Jason surprised me and wanted to go. So we quickly made him a cow costume like the rest of ours and he enjoyed some awesome chicken. The repair man showed up after we had eaten and gotten back home and safely stowed away our costumes for next year.
Thankfully, this last time wasn’t a huge issue with the air. The guy quickly showed Jason what to do. Jason showed him out and talked to him for a little while in the door way. Jason came back and sat down opposite me in the living room. I don’t remember what we were talking about but Jason gasped in the middle of a sentence and asked, “Do I still have the cow nose on?” Sure enough the tip of his nose was very black just like I had painted it to go to Chick-fil-A! “No wonder the guy kept looking at me so funny!” We laughed and laughed.
Oh and here’s one on me: Yesterday I told you about our fun day at Chick-fil-A. As I read my story that morning, (I write the posts the day before.) I noticed I had written, “It’s also great to watch the people come in who are not dressed.” Ah ha ha ha! “Dressed up in a cow costume” is what I MEANT! Hilarious!

Oh my word, when I saw your title to this post and the Chick-fil-A picture I thought “Oh no, was she there and saw me and hubby and now she’s writing about it?” I’ll explain. Our family also went there for customer appreciation day. And we spent a good deal of time laughing. Well, hubby and I, not so much the kids. My 14 year old tried to hide behind her iPhone. We were brainstorming ideas for my upcoming website which will focus on organization. We had lots of ideas including “geese in a column.com” with a tagline “for people who struggle with keeping their ducks in a row”. Then we moved on to just plain old “Geese in a heap”! It doesn’t sound so funny now, but I was laughing so hard I was crying! It was a fun time, we needed that laugh!
And hubby’s cow nose was half worn off, which, believe me, looks a lot worse!
Funny! I always love coming to your place, Esther and hearing the latest funny moment in your life. It also seems like you all are having to fix more and more things in your house! It’s amazing that you’re still able to laugh with all that going on! 🙂
So does the whole family come in cow costumes? Any hints? My husband and I were there last week and didn’t have the costumes, so we didn’t get the great deal–although we did eat there. But my husband said he would’ve dressed up, if he’d known. So the “black nose” is rule number one but what else did your hubby wear? I need all the help I can get to “cow-up” my man!
We were at cow day by accident, and oh my word!, I wish we hadn’t been! It was crazy in there. Cute post. I am glad all those patrons were dressed as cows and not naked! That would have been way worse. 😉
*giggle* Nekkid people in Chick-fil-a!
