Sometimes, while at work, I dream of having a plate of fried chicken at home waiting for me to just dive into when I get back.
My dream actually came true for one group of friends in Alachua County, Florida, but they weren’t as happy about it as I would’ve been. That’s probably because somebody broke into their house to make it.
FOX News reports that two sisters and their companion walked into the sisters’ home to discover that another one of their friends had broken into the home. Although he wasn’t stealing valuables and looking for a quick getaway. Instead, he was cooking up fried chicken on their stove.
According to one of the sisters, the burglar, who is apparently a good cook, had gotten into the fridge and freezer and helped himself to some chicken, sausage, and liquor. She gave a hilarious recount of the events to FOX 35:
“He was in here, drunk as a skunk, just being Betty Crocker.”
The sisters were obviously scared of the situation, so they eventually got the burglar out of the house and called police to arrest him as he wandered the nearby streets in a drunken stupor.
While we don’t know if the sisters tried their burglar friend’s fried chicken, their other friend did end up trying it and said it was seasoned “very well.”
If it were me, I would’ve waited until he finished cooking the fried chicken and eventually passed out. I’d have a double win in that case: the burglar would be out of my house without taking any valuables and I’d have some fresh fried chicken to eat.
That would be a double winner fried chicken dinner.
