Dilemmas Galore

I'm caught on the horns of a dilemma! I should be joining in the outcry over gay marriage statements made by the Chick-fil-A Restaurant  President and COO. The politically correct thing to do is to boycott Chick-fil-A but that's where the dilemma horns start jabbing my rear. You see, I've always felt that a Chick-fil-A sandwich is pretty shitty. Obviously such a conclusion reveals that I have partaken in this delicacy. I have - only because the High Primal loves them and many years ago I vowed to go through this marriage for better or for worse. Whether the occasional indulgence in a Chick-fil-A sandwich contributed to my heart by-pass is another matter. The point is , I can't join in the boycott of Chick-fil-A - it would be hypocritical. I'd be making no sacrifice and quite possibly, I would put a strain on my marriage. Wouldn't it suffice to say that I hate Chick-fil-A. I wouldn't feel deprived if I never ate one of their sandwiches again. I think their CEO is an asshole. I will do my best to wean the High Primal from Chick-fil-A sandwiches. Enough said!

 As an aside I read where some former Boy Scouts are returning their Eagle Badges to the Boy Scouts of America in protest over their ban on gays. Another dilemma! I should be packing up my Eagle Badge and return it to whence it came from. Damn it all - as I recall I worked pretty hard for it.  What good did it do John Kerry to return his Silver Star. Cost him the presidency, that's what. I might still make a run for the presidency, so I'll let my heirs worry about disposing of my Eagle Badge.

Go ahead! Do it! But make sure you call the paper or a TV station first and tell them your age and what you're going to do. I'll bet they come out to interview you. It will be a good deed and you'll feel good about it. However, I want to acknowledge the achievement. It's an honor most could not accomplish. Send it back and I'll come to Cleveland and take you and High Primal out to dinner.
