Henrietta: “Say it isn’t so! I just can’t believe it!”

Me: “What are you talking about?”

FC: “We looked at your calendar and it says you’re going to Jason’s birthday lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. Are you crazy? Are you out of your mind? Do you have any idea what sort of place that is?”

Me: “Uh, ya, I’m perfectly aware. They have some really good wings there.”

Henrietta: “They’re CHICKEN WINGS!!!!! Have you no sense of decency and compassion?”

FC: “Henrietta and I think she’s gone off the deep end. We’ve started a campaign to protest this whole chicken wing fad that’s running amuck in our nation. Poultry unite! It’s called “Just Say No.”

Me: ” Girls, I know you’re in a flap, but, I assure you, none of us are eating chickens you personally knew. You shouldn’t get your feathers ruffled over this. And, by the way, you can’t use “Just Say No” as your campaign slogan. Someone else is already using it.”

Henrietta: “I can’t believe you’re so unfeeling about this. How can you, in good conscience, sit there and eat CHICKEN WINGS for lunch and not have the least little feeling of guilt? It’s scandalous!”

Me: “Oh, I’ll have guilt alright. Did you know that 6 buffalo chicken wings have nearly 450 calories? That’s just amazing.”

FC: “She needs to be in rehab, Hen. She’s completely past hope. She’s really gonna do it. We have to step this up a notch. I say we don’t speak to anyone else in the office that eats chicken wings. We’ll show ’em!”

Henrietta: “I don’t think that will work, dear.”

FC: “Why not?”

Henrietta: “Because we can’t really talk to anyone else. They can’t hear us. We’re just voices inside HER head. Remember?”

FC: “Say it isn’t so. It’s almost as bad as ending up in a plate of chicken wings. Chickens should have some rights.”

Me: “You do. You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can be used against you in…”

FC: “Very funny. You just wait. I’ll find a way to get even.”

Me: “If it makes you feel any better. Thanksgiving is coming up.”

FC: “Why would that make me feel better?”

Me: “Because people will be eating turkey instead of chicken. Doesn’t that make you happy?” 🙂
