Ahhhhh, Lary ... you take me back. I remember eating goat stomachs at a Vietnamese wedding I went to, along with some weird vegetable coated in a black slippery sauce. You couldn't bite into the veggie but swallowed it whole (hence the purpose of the slipperty sauce). Neither tasted like chicken ...

Never again eat something that tastes like chicken, unless you know for sure that it is chicken.
That expression is used by cannibals to describe their food.

Extra crispy looks really good. I think you were just relieved not to see silver stars anywhere when you looked up.

This really caught my attention.
Like a photo from Life magazine. As Soenda
wrote, it truly does provoke many thoughts
about the life of a soldier.

It might even have BEEN chicken at one time. Neat glimpse into the past.

Classic!!! Agree with Estralita!

SO what did it smell like?
The Third Side29-Mar-2007 01:38
Tastes like chicken, and you probably hoping that it was.

So back then you took lighter fluid in your coffee?

That simple upward glance, it says a lot. There's a wariness there that comes from being in danger, I think, even when you were away from the front. Also a sense of being interrupted; young men need to get their chow inside quickly. Quite a bit of intensity here.
