Chicken Soup for My Soul



So yes, I acknowledge that Royal Guilt had been the last post for quite sometime. I was on vacation, okay. Yes, spring break. As a student professionale I strive to be the oldest spring breaker on the beach. Don't hate if you have a real job. I spent my time touring the entire state of Florida. Literally. I spent about $200 in gas. Damn Bush. But it was worth it. I spent time with high school and college friends that I had not seen in months in places I had not been in years. My friends always motivating and hilarious! It was a break I desperately needed. Chicken soup for my soul. Away from professors, statisical analyses, email and into the ease of the Florida lifestyle and slow but repetitive swipe of my credit card at every freakin' store I stopped in! The bank even called me mentioning a crisis alert! I was in Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Gainesville, Tallahassee...just swiping away. What is more relaxing than finding your coveted handbag on sale at Banana Republic before you go to a fashion show on South Beach? And all those good looking bodies... Mmm...mmm...good.

Unfortunately while I was gone my father caught the worst flu known to man. I was soooo sad to hear my Daddy sound so sick, all he wanted to eat was soup. My friend called me in need of help that I was unable to give her. If I wasn't partying it up in Florida and had taken the time to check my voice mail (which I never do) I might have been able to help. However, one thing I do know about her, as well as all of my friends is she can make a way out of anything. Just give her a $0.77 can of chicken noodle soup. She loves it. Hungry, chicken noodle soup. Bad day, Chicken Noodle soup. We made a liquor run during mardi gras and she HAD to have two cans of chicken noodle soup.

Since I am supposed to be helpful, I encourage everyone to do something soothing for themselves. Not nice...soothing. Like take a vacation, buy that outrageously priced PSP. (its a handheld video game, mp3 player...soothingly unnecessary) Use your sick days and actually GO to the Final Four. Buy a new pair of shoes...be creative with your chicken soup. (take that any way you like)

What is with the healing power of chicken soup anyway? Noodle or no noodle? Chicken soup is just nasty. What is it by the way? Baked chicken juice fat with noodles if you are lucky? I will stick to the beach healing my emotional and physical ailments. Besides, I don't do limp noodles and if you close your eyes, everything tastes like chicken. So imagine if it's soup...blelck!

    I find it funny that my chicken soup is a plate full of snow crab legs :)
