The Shopping Trip Tamer
Growing up very near Southlake Mall in Morrow, Georgia, my parents often took my two sisters and I with them on shopping trips that were meant to be short, but often lasted for hours.
Trudging from store to store, we wondered if we were ever going to go back home. Sometimes, however, we would get lucky, and those longer-than-expected mall trips would keep us there until a meal time, and if we played our cards just right, it meant incorporating a visit to the food court.
Once we were in the food court, it was a no-brainer that we would ask for a Chick-fil-A Sandwich. To this day, I don't remember any of the other food court vendors.
And even if we couldn't have a full-on lunch at Chick-fil-A, we could often drop by for a free sample, which was another highlight.
Every time I have a Chick-fil-A Sandwich, I can remember the first time I ever tried one at Southlake Mall. So not only do I still enjoy the best chicken sandwich around, I enjoy the childhood memories.
