19: Lenard’s Lemon Chicken

Boy sometimes the world can really come at you fast huh? With so much going on in the world around us it can be hard sometimes to just catch your breath and take a minute to appreciate all the things in our lives we have to be thankful for. This is why we you don’t feel like you have that time, you need to find a way to MAKE the time! I’ve found that having a few of these trusty chicken recipes in my proverbial back pocket is a great way to make some time in the evening to spend with my family while also enjoying a fantastic meal that didn’t kill my schedule or budget to make!

Here we go they’re about to talk, this is the whole reason we’re here.

Okay so they look almost exactly the same so I’m gonna say he’s Franklin, Franky’s the one on the right. My right, and um…insulation (that’s what I’m calling the other) is on the left…my left. Oh shhh!, more plot driving info is coming!

Said insulation.

Franklin said slightly turning it’s head to insulation, if annoyance were a mood you could see on a face comprised of thousands of tiny insects you might see it here, if you could see it, which you can’t.

Oh Snap!

And with a resounding boom the molecules are pumped into the trailer park! Its night down there right now so most of the residents are asleep or otherwise occupied. If they weren’t they’d be privy to some pretty outlandish shit. Buzzards morphing into cat gargoyles, lizards getting the dancing bug, and let’s not forget the sentient blood sucking shit leeches. I have to say my favorite has to be the giant chickens though.

Hey let’s go see the giant chickens! Here press the button on this garage door opener. It just transports us to the next relevant scene in the story…honest. Come to think of it I’m surprised it took me this long to remember I had it. I guess it could’ve saved you some undue physical discomfort and mental anguish.
