I do love ‘em! Nuclear ones? For sure. Barbecue sauced? Oh yes. Super messy? Um, is there any other way?! I don’t think there’s a single type of chicken wing that I do not enjoy.
I’m not exactly sure when and where my love for the wing developed, but since my college days they have been a staple of my dining out experience. I, on occasion, attempt to fight my natural urge and order something else – but, I usually fail and find myself saying to the server, “So, tell me about your wings.”
I sort of feel bad for my friends and family who eat with me. They have the unfortunate view of barbecue sauce smeared from my upper cheek to my lower chin. For a while I think the spectacle embarrassed certain ones, but now they overlook it. I, mean, honestly, they may as well. How do you even eat a wing neatly? Is it possible?! And besides, I think the messiness adds to their charm (and mine).
So, I’m dying to hear from you – what’s your take on chicken wings? And, can you eat them without getting dirty? If so, tell me your secret!
