The 5 "Ch"s

My wife has cruelly gone on a business trip and left me alone this weekend. Because her name is Christina, the obvious answer is to fill the hole with as many things that also begin with "Ch" as possible.

The original once-you-pop-you-can't-stop snack, though they don't pop nor am I sure they came before Pringles. But I know for sure that once your throat clogs with mucous-y orange glue, the only cure is more.

Also known as pork rinds, scratchings and cracklins. Whenever I walk around the store with my bag of chicharronnes, I say, "Chicharron chicharron. Chicharron chicharron chicharron" in the tune of that one song that I don't know the name of. I am really annoying.

Chili Dogs
Best food ever topped with the seventh best food ever? Yes thanks! Because hot dogs topped with fried chicken is just weird.

Chicken Wings
As you can see, this whole weekend is a competition between loneliness and cardiac arrest. They're racing to see which can kill me first.

Awwww, the heart healthy Ch!


Eating salty snacks is thirsty work. After posting this, I needed some high fructose corn syrup, and so headed down the block to the convenience store. It wasn't until I got back that I realized how appropriate my choice of soda was:
Cherry Coke.

This is getting weird...
