What does 100 degrees, Chicken & my Husband all have in common?

CRAZY...that is what it equals! Matt woke up at 5:00 AM this morning to pack a cooler, make some sandwiches and pack a tent and pillow to spend the day and night at the Chick-Fil-A that is opening here in St. Louis. Why is he doing this you may ask? Well, the first 100 people in the doors tomorrow morning get Chick-Fil-A FREE for one whole year! They are give a coupon for 52 FREE value meals. So that equals a free meal once a week for a year! THAT IS THE CRAZY PART!
When Matt and Jason (one of his friends from seminary) arrived they were each given a number (they got numbers 4 & 5. Matt said they would have been first but there were 3 guys in front of them who spent the night there). Anyway, now that they have these numbers they are unable to leave the parking lot. Matt and Jason set up a tent, they have 3 big coolers full of ice with water, sandwiches and fruit.
Matt and Jason are calling me with updates about every hour. I just got a call that they were given a FREE gallon of Sweet Tea and two big cups of ice. Matt was also excited because he just met the son of the founder of Chick-Fil-A. The boys are having the time of their lives...who would have thought? Keep checking in for more updates on their adventure to FREE CHICK-FIL-A for a year!

I just read about that on their website last week. Where are they opening a Chick-fil-A here?

They are opening the Chick-Fil-A in the Valley (Boone's Crossing). DO you know where that is?

That is too funny. Heck, 52 value meals is well worth it.
