Funny Story

It’s a slow day, so here is that funny story I promised. I think it’s funny, anyway. I have shared this with a few folks, so maybe you have heard it.

Anyway, several years back, my family and I are visiting my Grandparents. We are on a little trip, of sorts, with them to a museum and we are going to stop for lunch. We find this barbecue place. I believe it was called Woody’s. So, we stop there and go inside.

We sit down at our table and look over the menu. One of our party decides that s/he would like turkey. So, s/he orders turkey.

Guess what?

No turkey.

Alright, so that person will have some barbecue chicken then. Chicken ordered.

Guess what?

No chicken.

That’s right. No chicken at a barbecue restaurant. (One of us actually asked if they had chili, but they didn’t have that, either!). I mean, what type of barbecue restaurant has no chicken (and then no turkey and no chili)? Why even open the doors?

We got up and left. But, it was an experience.
