Secret #30

I'm currently on my lunch break at work, eating a pot pie. Usually in the mornings I wake up at the last possible minute, so I don't have time to make myself a lunch for the day. A few weeks back I bought a box of frozen chicken pot pies from Costco in the hopes that one of those would be able to hold me over on the days that I wasn't able to make a lunch (which, consequently, seems to be every day) or convince one of my coworkers that they want to go out to lunch.

I think since I bought them, I've eaten 4 or 5 of them. They've actually got a lot of things in them: chicken, carrots, celery, peas, and onions. And of course the pie itself and the sauce.

The problem is that I don't like peas, onions, or cooked celery. So for the first 2 pies, I had chicken and carrot pot pie. Not too bad. But I kept feeling sick after I finished them and had this weird film on the roof of my mouth. 2 pies ago, I decided to not eat the chicken. This was because I found a particularly sketchy piece in my mouth that felt and tasted like cartilage and nothing else. After closer inspection of the chicken, I discovered that the chicken in these pies is suuuuuper sketchy. Like real bad.

So now, my lunch is a "carrot and sauce" pot pie. The upside to this is that the crust of these pies is really, really good, so I get to taste more of it because there's no other crap in my mouth to interfere with the taste of the crust.

Maybe I should start making lunches for myself...
