And so it was that last week, my buddy Ken was preparing his lunch at work. He laid out his bread to make a sandwich. Got his chips ready. Then, I noticed him rummaging around in the fridge a bit longer than necessary. Finally, he asked if I had cleaned out the fridge the night before. He couldn’t find the chicken salad he put in there. I replied that I hadn’t seen any chicken salad lately. He said that I may not have noticed because it was actually in a reused cottage cheese container. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks! I had indeed thrown out his food! I thought it was my own seriously outdated cottage cheese and without even looking, I just tossed it.
And so, here was poor Ken, looking at his lonely, naked bread. And no way to go pick up some fast food. I offered him my measly salad, but he declined. He was a good sport and laughed it off, but I still felt horrible.
That night, I whipped up a batch of my famous chicken salad just for Ken. He liked it so much that he said I could steal his food anytime if I just brought him more chicken salad!
Here’s the chicken salad recipe for when you, too, need to apologize.
