The Cow and I

Originally I titled this "Me and the Cow" but decided that was just wrong.

My brother insisted I have my picture taken with the cow.

I met some of the cows - or rather people who wore the cow suit.

One such person was a young woman whose name tag was printed "V."

Usually I am not so good with names but I was able to remember a single letter name. I think she was from Houston. She thought our weather was awfully cold but I assured her it was actually warm for us. She was one o the Chick-Fil-A employees who helped with the crowd staying out all night.

She also went to some of the schools to hand out coupons. She said she made at least one small child cry.

The manager of the store told us they sold more on Friday than they did on the opening day. It was insanely busy. On the other hand they are really fast about getting people through the lines - both inside and out. If the line outside builds they go out and have people taking orders before the ordering machine.

Tomorrow - we went to the movies last night and watched Taken. Cool movie.

Too cute. You should ask them for a costume and become an honorary cow. Was this just for the opening or do they have cows there all the time?

I'm glad you are sharing pictures. We have one Chick-Fil A here in MN. It's on the University campus and is very popular. I like their chicken and used to eat there when I worked on campus.

I always thought the chik cow was a cute mascot. I think making you an honorary cow is a grand idea:)
