Chicken Is Nasty?
Fed Up: #SavageVegan
I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Labor Day Weekend!
I traveled to Washington, D.C. for my Mom’s birthday. We had a tentative itinerary for the weekend, but nothing set in stone. One thing on our to-do list, was to visit the Nation African American Museum of History and Culture. It was a must! We didn’t have tickets in advance because they sell out so quickly, but I got online at 6:30 am for same-day passes. It was so worth it. I didn’t want to take many pictures because I wanted to be present in the moment. Here are some pictures I took…
Next on our agenda was Twins Jazz to see Tim Whalen and company. We had a blast! I didn’t get to take any pictures inside of the venue because we were cutting up (lol).
It was late night and my mom ordered BBQ chicken while I had fried onion rings. I was curious to taste a chicken wing and let me tell y’all something… It tasted like dawn dish water. NASTY! Don’t ask me how I know what that tastes like… just follow the visual. I asked my mom if it tasted funny to her and she said it tasted like normal chicken. I was like…
It’s official… I wondered when this day was going to come. My taste buds have somehow reset and my longtime love for chicken is gone. I’m just as shocked as you are. I know y’all… I can’t make this up.
While in D.C., I did use my new and improved 90/10 rule on vegan eating. This is a new rule I made up to help me navigate through life while being vegan. I try really hard not to be that person who is a pain in the ass. I am 90% vegan, but I leave that 10% for an inconvenience. I am an easy travel companion and I don’t like to make a big fuss over something like a restaurant not having vegan options. Most restaurants have vegetarian options and that’s suitable for me while dining out. If you’re going to be a pain in the ass on your vegan journey… stay at home. *smiles*
On Sunday, we went on a boat ride with D.C. Cruises. I would recommend D.C. Cruises to everyone. It was such a pleasurable experience. Monuments-by-Moonlight was a perfect ending to our much-needed mother/daughter trip.
