Brother Got Me to Eat Chicken Again
Travecedo from Colombia
S. Peters My
mother used to tell me to eat another kind
of meat because she had to prepare chicken
for me even if she prepared another kind
of meat for the rest of the family.
remember when I was a child, I loved eating
chicken. I liked it prepared in all ways. Moreover,
I liked baked chicken, chicken soup, and roasted
chicken. I preferred eating chicken to meat or

day, we went out to eat. As my parents knew that I
liked chicken so much, we went to eat roasted
chicken. I remember when we got to the restaurant,
my mother, for some reason, didn't like it and
wanted to go to another place to eat.
all of us refused to go because we really wanted to
eat there. Finally, my mother agreed to stay. We
ordered roast chicken, yucca, and cokes. The meal
about 9 p.m., I went to sleep as usual. However,
around 2 a.m. that night something bad happened. I
woke up with a terrible stomachache. Immediately, I
went to my mother's bedroom and told her that I was
sick. About 15 minutes later, I went to the
bathroom and threw up.
that, I started to hate chicken, and I finally
stopped eating it. After that, whenever my mother
prepared chicken for my family, she had to prepare
another meal for me.
day, my parents went out of town. My brother, my
sister, and I stayed home. That night, I didn't
want to cook, but I was very hungry when I saw my
brother and sister eating fried chicken. Since I
was not eating, my brother offered me a piece of
first, I hesitated to accept it; however, he
insisted that I needed to eat something. He asked
me to take a bite of his chicken. When I tasted the
chicken, I really liked the flavor, so I decided to
eat a whole piece. It was so delicious that I
decided to eat another piece.
that evening, I realized that chicken is not bad,
and that whatever happened that day that I got sick
was something that doesn't happen all the time.
Nowadays, it is my favorite meal again!
