Beauty in the Chick-Fil-A Drive Through
The title doesn't have the same literary weight as if it had included a small town institution like Piggly Wiggly, but Piggly Wiggly doesn't sell Chick-Fil-A sandwiches OR have a drive through.
For those of you scratching your heads about the title reference, there is a book by Kate DiCamillo entitled Because of Winn Dixie which was made into a movie starring AnnaSophia Robb, Jeff Daniels, Cicely Tyson, Eva Marie Saint, Dave Matthews (yes, that one) and a charming rascal dog, Winn Dixie. Based on Winn Dixie's behavior, I believe him to be my Gus' forebear, if not in genes, at least in spirit.
It just goes to show, there's good light everywhere, even in the Chick-Fil-A drive through.
